We has a great time here! The room was bright and clean with a great view of the valley below. It's easy to reach, the bus stand is at walking distance, as is the lake. We had the best time just sitting out in the balcony and watching the lights below :) Very good value for money, will definitely recommend... More

This place has some great things going for it, most notably the view. My room (double room with small boiler for 24h hot water) was comfortable enough, but I'd been happy with a smaller and cheaper room if it hadn't been for the lack of hot water. Breakfast wasn't the best (weak coffee, bad jam with toast), but included in... More

Me and my husband stayed here for a day. We seriously regretted for not staying here more than a day. Rooms are simple with basic amenities. No luxurious things. But the scenic view Outside room was just mesmerizing. Food was good. Management people were v friendly and we had a v.pleasant stay here.

We were looking for some cheap accommodation in the midst of the peak tourist season. This place gives you no-nonsense accommodation for about half the price that you will need to pay up elsewhere. This is a fifteen-minute walk from seven roads junction, the centre of the town. But then, all that you hear is the tic-tic-tic of the forest... More

The stay here is absolutely comfortable and definitely pocket friendly.. The view from here is to die for.. Will make the trip again soon and this would be my spot.. The staff are very friendly as well.. Away from all the commotion during peak season.. A peaceful place to chill and enjoy nature's beauty.

Went to this place for a vacation in April. Offers a lovely view when the weather is clear. You are sitting over-viewing a valley above the floating clouds. Rooms were decent but the bathrooms fixtures need improvement. Food could be improved and even the management needs to be improved. Overall had a good experience minus the bathroom issues.

In the words of the hotel manager You can probably get places for cheaper in the town but you cant get anything with a better view.... Super place and not too expensive... i plan to return.... The owner is nice and helpful. The wifi is slowish and accessible from the reception.
