(+) This is a little guest house nestled high up on St. Andrew's road. Getting there is quite a climb, but it is away from the busy city and the area around Lake Gregory which can get very crowded especially over a long weekend. It is peaceful and clean and the staff are helpful. The food too (we only had... More

This hotel is located in the outskirt of city, approximately 5 kilometer from city center and road to hotel is very narrow with sharp turns making it risky business to reach the hotel by four wheeler. Further we had... More

The hotel is located in a serene location but the staff was rude and didn't bother us to help us much. We had requested to pack our breakfast and it was packed in a very unhygienic condition which we literally had to throw it away in the dustbins. Apart from that the sandwiches were stale. Had ordered coffee one night... More

From TripAdvisor it looked ok but it was pretty dodge really. It's quite far out the way and the road is a bit hairy - if you do come here please don't attempt by Tuk Tuk! The place is very smelly. Not sure what it was but the whole place had the same stink and it wasn't pleasant at all.... More

The positives first, great sized room with large floor to ceiling windows and fabulous views. Large bathroom. Clean with friendly staff and fast WiFi available in the communal area (lounge dining area). The down side is that this place is a long way from town and is not signposted, you need to follow the signs for misty view tours. The... More
