Attractive spotless wooden chalets with lovely new bathrooms and fridge provided in each, plus some basic cups/plates etc. Friendly owner who tried as hard with his few words of English as we tried with our even fewer words of Russian. We managed to communicate anyway!
Peaceful, convenient location, good for pretty walks along the lanes and river in Suzdal, 10 minutes from Kremlin, very near to several monasteries.
The gardens are pretty but I don't think children could play here without disturbing other guests - luckily there's a football pitch just through the monastery next door which is good for children who need a break from churches!
We didn't try the breakfast as it seemed rather expensive. Ditto the Russian banya which I had been looking forward to - until I found out it would an extra 2500 rbl (£50) for a couple of hours which seemed incredibly expensive to me.
Booked through Booking.com and printed their map - found the place no problem using that and checking the cyrillic road sign for Gasteva (the sign is opposite the turning itself) and confirming the house numbers along the lane. If on foot it's easier to go through the monastery, but in a car you'd have to take the second Gasteva turning as the first is a cul de sac when it reaches the monastery.
As in most places we stayed in Russia, some thicker curtains or blackout blinds would aid sleep quality in summer.
