We just came to use the pool (500R pp) which was ok though pretty dated. We decided to pay the minimum spend on food to cover the pool cost. The wait staff were rude and aggressive bordering on hostile. Do NOT order the cheese on toast - it's just six slices of soggy white bread with butter.

We stayed here for two nights. Room dark, smells, bathroom bad, zinc leaking. Many mosquitoos in the room. Swimming pool nice. Wifi good in reception area. Food not enough and bad quality. There are many big groups visiting this hotel. Make sure you eat before the group. Staff friendly. Manager grumpy.

This hotel is one of which Geekos tours use! Please stay away from it! Most people on my tour had creepy experiences with the staff. Ranging from staff waking up a single female to fiddle around with the electrical box to her room, to having staff be in a couple's room when obviously they shouldn't have been there. My particular... More

We stayed only one night at this guest house but the room was very clean and the people working there very welcoming and helpful. We asked for information about trains or stuff like this and they gave us very useful advices. The swimming pool is also very nice. The only thing is that I would not recommend the restaurant. Although... More

Out of four rooms we reserved, you can't lock the bath room inside in three rooms. When we claimed that manager told us that you can just close the door because you are a family (I have three kids also). Rooms are extremely smelly. You can't sleep because of the sound of the old air conditioner.It was very hot in... More
