The owner & staff respond well to service requests. We stayed for 4 nights but the breakfast is the same each morning the only variation being the juice. We had two rooms on the ground floor... More

A beautiful home conveniently located, furnished with taste. I feel at home there. Sabine watches over guests and keep their well-being. Unlike a hotel there is a soul here that makes me happy. Friendly staff and a neat environment complete pleasure

Moreover, the steep stairs to the upper rooms did not have a bannister which we found rather dangerous. All in all, it was the worst place... More

Although the staff are not very friendly and the breakfast is limited to croissants, the location and rooms are amazing. Loads of beautiful Tanjore art, lots of lush greenery and the rooms are large and clean. Also has free wifi.

This place is quirky, charming, kitschy and over the top all at once. It is in a great location and yet is hard to find. Look out for a tiny yellow door on a whitewashed wall. Once inside you will overwhelmed be by the trees and plants that dot the guesthouse. If you happen to book the ground floor La... More
