          there are various buildings in this massive compound, which is the one you stayed in with "massive room" or suite and an indoor swimming pool? because the one I stayed in previously had mediocre furniture and bathroom. I would love to return to the hotel because of its unrivaled gardens and views. would appreciate your answer and I intend to book for a short stay this month.

          I recommend the West Lake View room of villa 7, the room is spacious and you can appreciate the beautiful lake view outside just by the window or take seating in the balcony.

          HI, I made a reservation online with this West Lake State Guesthouse . But I would like to be able to contact them directly to arrange transport and make other requests. But all the email addresses listed for this hotel don't seem to work. Does anybody have an email for them that works?
