Is my first visit and stayed for 3 nights in this guesthouse. Location is nearby the secondary port which is less than 5 mins walk. To get there from Raja Tiga port in Prapat, just tell the ferry boy you are going to Romlan guesthouse and he will signal you to alight the ferry after few stops from Bagus Bay port.
I'm staying in one of their Standard Room which is quite spacious. The room is facing the lake, private bathroom with hot shower, veranda and wifi. They provide you with 2 towels only, full stop. So please bring your own necessities. The bed is clean and comfy, like the firmness of the bed which give me a good sleep. This room do not have Tv set, fan, and air-condition. So set your expectation with the price you're paying for the room.
Food is nice. I had try their Indomie, fried rice special and chicken chop, sausages with egg and sandwiches. My favourite was their Indomie. I had that for 3 days. :) Inside the cafe there are family dogs and cat roam around, but don't worry they are clean and without smell. They do sell mineral water and chill beer in the cafe. Price are reasonable for their food.
Wifi signal is the strongest at the cafe. Is lagging at time due to many users connect at the same time. Outside from Romlan there are a lot of groceries shop, souvenir shop, cafe, restaurant and stalls. You can rent motorcycle from Romlan or bicycle outside the stall.
Night time, is cooling and peaceful. Although there is no fan or air-cond the room is well ventilated. The only sound I heard is the lake water splashing against the wall barrier. Is so calm and peaceful.
The only cons is the electricity in the island. Stayed for 3 night, 2 nights power failure around 9pm.
