I was here the yesterday night. And I met a waitress who worn a blue dress with white dots. At first impression, I thought she was friendly, she talked to me so nicely, I'm actually into her. But then I noticed that she ignored a girl who sit at the front table for several times although the girl had already... More

Dear customer, i am the owner and can remember this incident (first time in many years) and can understand your reaction. What you wrote down is completely right, but you miss the underlying reason. The customer sitting outside was a friend of our catcher and she was there for about 3 hours chatting. When i saw them chatting many times... More

After a recommendation we swapped hotels to this hotel. It was really well run, the room had all amenities of a more expensive hotel for less of the cost. We loved the rainbow shower!! Great location on the main backpackers street though from your cosy room you'd have no idea. The staff had little English but were very lovely and... More

After traveling for awhile and typing only on my iPod, it was such a treat to have a working computer in our room! Beautiful room, tastefully furnished with nice decorations and great light coming in from the large balcony. We could have easily stayed a week.

We ended up on this street with no hotel booking and found that most places were either booked or way out of our price range. We had almost made it to the end of the road when we stumbled into this place that just looks like a restaurant from the street. It turned out to be a great little place... More

We should a disclaimer that we did not stay at this place and therefore cannot comment on the quality of the accommodation. However, we did stop here for a meal and we were greatly disappointed. We have been in the country for over two weeks and have eaten some great local food. Unfortunately this place delivered our worst meal to... More

Hi Kylie, first about taste, everyone has a different taste, you probably like food having a stronger taste than we serve (i have the same) , but we are going to try to make it more tasteful by experimenting with some more fresh herbs. More chili not though, as not everyone likes spicy. Instead we will add chili separate. As... More

Having to review on the bed n breakfast listing as despite the restaurant advertising a huge 'recommended by tripadvisor' sign out front they dont appear to be listed under restaurants! Very misleading as people trust tripadvisor accreditations (as we did) on face value! We arrived at around 8:50pm, it was pretty busy but we managed to snag a front table.... More

You were totally right about the very very slow service. Should not have happened. The only reason was that from the 4 people normally working in the kitchen 2 called in the afternoon that they could not come. 2 staff is by far not enough when it is busy, and it was very very busy that day. Again, sorry, have... More
