The staff was very friendly. Room was clean and beds were comfortable. The AC was good. We had a local good breakfast too. The room...

We just came to use the pool (500R pp) which was ok though pretty dated. We decided to pay the minimum spend on food to cover the pool cost. The wait staff were rude and aggressive bordering on hostile. Do NOT order the cheese on toast - it's just six slices of soggy white bread with butter.

We stayed here for two nights. Room dark, smells, bathroom bad, zinc leaking. Many mosquitoos in the room. Swimming pool nice. Wifi good in reception area. Food not enough and bad quality. There are many big groups visiting this hotel. Make sure you eat before the group. Staff friendly. Manager grumpy.

Ranging from staff waking up a single female to fiddle around with the electrical box to her room, to having staff be in a couple's room when obviously they shouldn't have been there. My particular...

We stayed only one night at this guest house but the room was very clean and the people working there very welcoming and helpful. We asked for information about trains or stuff like this and they gave us very useful advices. The swimming pool is also very nice. The only thing is that I would not recommend the restaurant. Although...

My Husband and I stayed here for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. The bed is very comfortable and the pillows are lovely. We found the staff to be very friendly and they could not do enough for us.

“The hotel has wifi in the lobby. All the rooms are nice I think. Don't even think twice about coming here. You will so not regret it. It's lovely. Open concept in the lobby. Small bungalow type place. Very very nice. I loved this place.”
