My husband and I had a very relaxing stay here. The room was large and clean and decorated thoughtfully. The mosquito net over the bed was useful (kept out a few pesky mossies). Plenty of hot water. The location is perfect, just a short walk away from noisy Kumily. The lush and colourful gardens are also a drawcard. The price you pay for this kind of accommodation is more than reasonable.
For those who enjoy trekking, I recommend the border trek which runs from 8am to 5pm. You walk in a small group through beautiful tracts of forest (some uphill walking isn't easy for the unfit but you get plenty of rest breaks) and you see so many animals. Plus being away from the large groups of visitors means you get to have a more tranquil experience in the forest.
