the location is spectacular, right on the river where the elephants bath. Why the owners decline to capitalise on this is beyond me. Rooms are very poor, balconies tiny all reminiscent of an American highway motel built in the seventies. Food is also mediocre. A shame, a modest investment could turn this place in something really special.
