We enjoyed our stay in one of the bungalows at Princess Garden. The place feels a little like an Oasis with its pretty gardens and refreshing swimming pool. The room was quite basic, but comfortable. However, one big complaint was how DARK it was in the bungalow. There is very little lighting and with the dark bamboo walls the room just doesn't get bright enough. I used my headtorch to read at night! Also, the shower (although there was hot water) was just a trickle - not what you want after a hard 3-day trek. That said, Princess Garden has friendly staff who make you feel welcome - and they bring you a surprise drink in the afternoons which was a nice touch. Be aware that the hotel is a little out of town. We didn't think this would bother us - it's not a long walk - however, we felt very uncomfortable taking this walk after dark. There is no street lighting and there are lots of stray dogs - not good! It is also nigh on impossible to find transport. If Princess Garden had a restaurant we'd have been more than happy - but being 'forced' to go out every evening for dinner turned into a chore of trying to make transport arrangements to avoid the walk. There are no rickshaws/tricycles etc. by the hotel. One of the male hotel staff was helpful in getting one for us, but previously we asked a female staff member and she refused to help - insisting we had to walk. We didn't find it easy to find transport in town after dark either. Also be aware that there is no internet access available at Princess Garden.
