It's clean, it's comfortable and it has an old world charm. The attention to detail, the garden and the peocock just added to the ambience. A perfect homestay! It has basic amenities and the food was home-cooked. Stay here if you don't wish to stay at the any of the overpriced chains.

Something about living out of home stays. Nice and tidy rooms, fresh linen, decent amenities, breakfast. Loved the decor and eye for detail. A very friendly and welcoming hostess. Shared the morning tea, had a small chat, got compliments on my skin *blush* Sure to return for the warmth
