I stayed for a whole 8 days at this hotel on the outskirts of the city of Luang Prabang. Paul and his mother run a tight ship which means that the hotel and gardens (Paul's mother's domain) are extremely well ordered and well maintained. Everyone, including all the members of Paul's staff, are extremely attentive and nothing is too much trouble and everything is attended to immediately. Staying for that many days meant that I was able to get to know everyone well and I certainly felt more than just someone staying in the hotel.
There are cycles available at the hotel free of charge and I used one almost everyday that I was there - it is about 15 minutes to ride slowly into the city centre. The cycle is also invaluble for getting around the city itself - so do take advantage of this free facility. There are motorbikes available but there might be charge so check. The shuttle bus is also very useful for getting to and back from the night market or just from the city after an evening out.
Breakfast (eggs is a variety of ways and pancakes, fruit and french sticks, juicem, tea, coffee) is served in an open space that looks out onto the garden - a very nice way to start the day.
The hotel has an excellent theme running through it with some really beautiful wooden furniture in the reception area.
As with other guests, I found the mosquito's liking of the taste of my blood a bit of problem, but the hotel provided a can of spray and lighted a mosquito repellent incense coil outside my room every night.
I was pleased that I spent that long in Luang Prabang because after spending some time in a hectic city, I needed to wind down in order to appreciate it and its people. The hotel provided an excellent base and the staff (especially Paul and his mother) gave firm support for that exploration.
