The room wasn't very modern but clean. The views were breath taking. The staff were very friendly and ever so helpful when we couldn't get a train to Ella. They also gave us information about tours and locals. Food served in cafe was very tasty for snacks and sandwiches.

I initially booked 3 nights and later cancelled the first night. The owner emailed a week before arrival saying that there was a "problem" with my room and as such would be moved to their other building around the corner. I agreed as I thought it would be of a similar standard as Blinkbonnie Inn. The other place turned out...

The proprietor at this property os extremely welcoming and has excellent English. He will collect from the town centre as well which would be very welcomed after a long bus journey (if only we had known!) The first thing he did was warn us of all the scams and advised how much Tuk Tuks should cost etc which was great....

Stayed here for one night. Rooms are clean and comfortable and food is nice. Trip was arranged for us at a reasonably good deal. Not far from the town, about 10mins down the hill, through the shortcut. Lovely views. Would recommend this guest house.
