The hotel is really nice with beautiful forest view. The rooms are comfortable and cozy and the hotel staff is nice and polite. The location is good and you can take a stroll down to the local market (but try to return back before sunset). Breakfast is nice and the restaurant is good too.

We visited this place by the end of March 2016. We were two couples, the hotel was good and maintained well. No regrets in staying there but the food was a little problem as it would take quite a long to serve it. The day of arrival we were served food after two hours of placing an order. Though this...
