My lovely wife and I spent two nights at this bed & breakfast when visiting Kalaw. We booked it largely because of the rave reviews on this esteemed site. But to be honest I'm not sure what all the fuss is about. It was OK at best. Certainly nowhere amazing as some other reviews suggest. We have stayed in nicer - and cheaper - places in each of Yangon, Bagan and Mandalay.

Our room was large, clean and decorated to a reasonably good standard. But It smelt damp and musty. Worse still, the bedding was damp, something I have never experienced at any hotel anywhere in the world. There is simply no excuse for this.

The shower was hot but the towels were thin and rough. The WiFi was the worst I have encountered in two weeks in Myanmar. It was sometimes slow but more often didn't work at all. The garden was very pleasant. It was nice to sit out on the deck o the early evening.

I found the breakfast rather underwhelming in the light of the many rapturous reviews. The fabled banana bread was dry and uninspiring. The regular bread was better and made a pleasant change from the usual awful sliced bread served up elsewhere. The homemade jams are also good. But it was all a bit too western. I would have liked a few more local options.

A cosy spot among the trees of Kalaw. The shower was a little erratic, it seemed to spew water in every direction except right at you, resulting in the entire bathroom getting wet. Appreciated the mosquito net, as it was quite buggy in the area. Selection for breakfast was rather small, but there is everything you need. The banana bread is good like the reviewers say, but the crepe-like pancakes are divine. So delicious to have one freshly made with local honey.

About a 15 min walk into the main town area. It gets quite dark at night, we kept a small light with us so we could see on our way back.

The place was secluded and spotlessly clean. Wonderful balcony to be in the jungle but out of the rain. Great food and easy walking distance to town (15 minutes or so) highly recommended! Very affordable. The only negative is there is no view as the jungle is quite dense.
