Maybe the rain and being ill here clouds my judgement. It was basic at best. Got bitten by things in the bed. Views were lovely, owner helpful (to his benefit), we ate toast and soup in the 'restaurant' for the 3 days there. Soup was good. We had a driver who was excellent. He's a family member/friend of the owner.... More

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.

Our room was clean and nice, the view was stunning, it was a nice walk to the lake, for going back we often took tuk tuk for 150 rupees...what I didn't like was that there was wifi only in the restaurant, where we had to ask to get something to drink everytime we came down, they never offered anything to...

First we were going to stay for 2 days, but the place was so great; the staff and the owner so nice, comfortable beds, view amazing, the restaurant really good and the price good, so we stayed for another 3 days. "Uncle" Steve the manager was really... More

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... More

I was a female solo traveler and I have to say that I am very grateful to Stephen at Blinkbonnie for his suggestions, tips and organization for me during my trip. When I first arrived, he was quick to offer me guidance and tips on traveling alone, and as I had no other plan for the next few days (I... More

It was amazing to stay in this hotel for 1 nights, I enjoyed it with my wife, from the balcony we can see all the green nature around, the mountains. They have a friendly staff who is always smiling and serving the best.

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.... More

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.
