Most raving titles of review apply. Some grumblings too though. The chalet was super nice, with a lovely view from the balcony. Mosquitoes outside only, and then from 16:00 to 18:00 exclusively. At night we slept with blankets: what a boon in aircon Indonesia. The afternoon tea, brought up to your balcony is very nice, supplied with locals sweets. There... More

Beautiful surroundings, a resort in a huge garden, 10 gardeners just to keep the property running. Expect to wake up with the birds and enjoy breakfast in the middle of the garden. Nice and helpful staff even if a bit slow on the service side (do not be in a hurry and do not try to get food too early... More

This guesthouse has a great location with a view of Mount Lokon. It also has a lovely garden, including an own green house. The breakfast was also outstanding. The rooms are large, but a little unpractical. It is almost impossible to keep mosquitoes out, which can ruin a good sleep.

I went there just for a lunch, just curious about some places around the highland. It was a beautiful place with colorful flowers everywhere, and the view of the mountain from my table was amazing. It's like you want to take pictures of every flowers you see. The food is quite expensive but come in enormous size. Wish they have... More

Two of us on our way from Manado to Buyat for a diving trip stopped off at the Gardenia Inn for two nights. The widespread grounds are joyously lush with rivulets and ponds of koi and goldfish, and flowers everywhere. We were greeted by friendly if unprepared staff and shown the way to our cottage. As we started to settle... More

My daughter and mine first time stay in Tomohon. Wanted somewhere quiet to read and relax after diving and shopping in manado town. We took the bunglow, the lady at the reception, Julia was wonderful but the new young gal cant speak English very well and the restaurant staff are lazy - they complained to me that they are serving...

A resort situated in a beautiful garden with kind and friendly staff, along with freshly-prepared and tasty food. Like most, our chalet had a great view of the gardens and looming Lokon volcano. Chalets simple but clean, without a/c. The biggest problem for the resort is one nearby church that runs services through public-announcement speakers at high volume every day... More

Looking at the different reviews I noticed that the valuation of the hotel is rather diverse. Most reviewers prize the surroundings of the hotel, but there are also those who point to the lack of service and consider the establishment overprized. After four days at the hotel I can understand the opinion of both parties but my own impression is... More

Absolutely beautiful setting in a large, well-tended garden (organic vegetables included), with comfortable cottages and friendly, easy-going service. On a sunny morning, the view of the Lokon volcano is stunning. The restaurant is excellent. The staff are receptive to any and all requests, and offer good suggestions.
