We had booked on the Internet and have no direct communication with the owners yet were met at the airport by Edith with flower garlands for us. We had not requested the transfer to the hotel and so this was a very nice initial contact with the owner.
Our room was at the back and away from the street. It was very quiet and pleasant (apart from the snoring guests in the room next door about which the owners could clearly do nothing) . The amenities were adequate and met our expectations given the remote location. We did not expect a fancy bathroom etc
The breakfast was as good as other reviewers say. Again small touches such as fresh lemongrass in the teapot and a small flower to garnish each dish enhanced our experience.
We do not meet Bill but found Edith and her daughter and her sister to be extremely personable and helpful. We would not hesitate to stay here again.
