The photos didn't tell the whole story of the Locomotive. Having said that, there were mostly positives. The hotel is in a great location. Short walk to the beach, or a few steps to the main road. In both directions you will find bars, cafes warungs and other shops. Scooters can be hired and seem to be the main transport on Lembongan. True, the bathrooms are a bit stinky but that's probably due to island infrastrucure rather than the hotel itself. The room was clean enough, bed linen etc so no complaints there. It would be nice to have fridges in the rooms and my tv was black and white picture only. It was ok ... Lembongan is what I imagined Bali to be back in the day so it was kinda fitting
Also, was wondering why an electric kettle is provided, but no tea/coffee etc?
The guys working at the hotel were always polite, humble and helpful and they worked long hours. Perhaps the owners of the hotel might consider giving them a slightly nicer place to work ... some landscaping near the pool, painting the metal hand-railing (couldn't quite figure out if they were meant to be that way?), a nicer entrance to the property. Anyway, the stay was very reasonably priced and one can't expect too much.More
