This was our second visit to Nick's Hidden Cottages (the first time back in 2009). Much was just as we remembered; beautiful paddyfield location, quiet street (better lit than before), fantastic buildings, divine pool overlooking the valley, basic but tasty breakfasts (fruit, eggs and toast). The setting and architecture of the place is just beautiful.
We stayed in one of the upper rooms, overlooking the pool. We had a double room with AC and stayed for 4 nights. Once again, we enjoyed our stay at Nick's Hidden. However, I feel I have to comment on some basic areas for improvement. Inside the rooms everything looks tired - paint was peeling from one of the walls, the curtains were dirty with mould, the bed sheets thin, the mossie net needed a good wash, towels often smelt musty. This is basic stuff that could be easily remedied, and would make Nick's Hidden go from OK to gorgeous.
Other non-essential things that would be nice; would be good to have a fridge in all the rooms and make sure that the wifi works (it only worked on the final day we were there).
We love the location of Nick's and how beautiful the setting is. However, in its current condition, we couldn't recommend it to friends because some of the most basic things need upgrading to an acceptable standard. This is a shame as we had such a lovely stay before, hence why we returned. With minor improvements this would be a beautiful and great value place to stay in Ubud.
