This guest house, although relatively basic, is fantastic. There is a whole new wing which is of a higher standard of accommodation so you can get anything from a backpacker dorm to a very modern good standard hotel room.
I was on a Charity Trek and as such was in a "middle" room - It was spacious, and comfortable, and had a huge wetroom.
The location of this guest house is superb - right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the tourist area. It has a gated driveway so is surprisingly quiet, even when sitting in the front courtyard. There are gardens to the rear which are very quiet and relaxing.
It is ideally located for all kinds of sightseeing and there are plenty of taxis around - make sure you agree a price with them before you use them and stick to it. Mine tried to get me to pay him more when he dropped us off (even though I had already given him a tip). Stand your ground and walk away if they try this - it is apparently quite common. Bartering is expected everywhere - except in the supermarket type shops - and can be quite good fun.
As for local eateries - the Third Eye (out of the guest house, turn right and it's about 300 yards on the right) is very nice with a roof top terrace which is a lovely setting.
