The concept was a good one when they started this place, but it's clear that the original owners have moved on and the current owners have not updated or maintained anything except the garden, which is very pretty. No hot water, pail flush toilets, a blanket which didn't fit the bed, dusty aging cabin. The website is a relic from the previous owners. There is no live music (unless you consider extremely loud kareoke from across the street live music), there are no mountain bikes. Getting to and from town is a hassle. We returned a rented motorbike in town at 6pm and could not get a tuk tuk home for love or money. Finally a kindly tuk tuk driver took pity on us but said normally no transport out to the Boat Landing is possible after 5pm, "I wish they would tell you people that" quote unquote. Well no one did tell us, communication at the Boat Landing was pretty poor (I think the manager was on leave). The website promises that they can book tours etc for you but we found that next to impossible. There was also mixed messages from staff and despite the 4 signs at reception saying they accept Visa, they don't. We stayed in a superior guesthouse in town for $9 a night (boat landing is $45). The food was good (except breakfast).
