We stayed for two nights. Bungalows are located in the somewhat unkempt garden on steep slopes of the hills. We were received by Honey, the owner, who was rather reserved in her welcome. Rooms are large but basic - no plugs for the wash basin causing precious water wastage and rudimentary shower fittings with electric geyser for hot water.
The major problem for us was no room heating. The temperature at night dropped to below 10deg.C and we were freezing!!! Some guests even bought extra blankets - maybe we should have too. We were also disappointed that the food served was also cold or cool, with courses being served all at once, making any hot dishes cold before they were consumed.
From our point of view - one to avoid unles you bring your thermals in cool weather.
