I stayed here for 11 nights just recently. Lovely place right on the lake.The staff were very friendly. Good food in the restaurant. Nice rooms with big balcony overlooking the lake. The hot water and wi Fi worked very well. Lake Toba is a great place to relax. I would say again.

Due to time constraints, I was only able to spend two nights here (which is a shame, as it was one of the most relaxing experiences of my life). It's not an easy thing, just to get to this location - as it requires multiple modes of transportation (planes/roads/boats & so forth)... But once you finally arrive, exhausted and fatigued......

We spend 4 lovely days there, with a lake view. We took a deluxe room, which was good, clean, with a small balcony, hot water. The staff is nice and restaurant is ok but for the price, we found better places outside. We had breakfast, lunch and diner there. At the end, when it comes to the bill, there was... More

My partner and I absolutely loved this place! From the moment we arrived and checked out our cute little traditional house it was love at first sight! For Rp 100.000/ night the room was amazing value; we got a lot more for our money than we have anywhere else in Indonesia- the cheapest and best place we have stayed. We... More

Food was simply amazing. As the owner of Romlan Guesthouse was German, the German-influenced food with a touch of local flavour was fantastic. The view overlooking the clear blue waters of the lake was breathtaking. Stay at the Deluxe Batakhouse for only 135,000 per night.

AVOID THIS PLACE! I was enjoying a trip in Indonesia and this place was a serious buzzkill. The only good things about this place were it's front of house person who was at the desk, and how close it was to other places we could eat and spend time in to get away from here. Some suggestions for improvement for... More
