“Just an excellent bargain with an awesome pool !”
Reviewed October 24, 2011

I was referred to this place by a regular and was sceptical of the place due to its location and comparatively bargain rate.The entrance was also a little eerie and almost missable , but once e got to the place we were pleasantly surprised ! The Pool was huge and clean, and we met a load of regulars that raved about the place, the location was 5 mins from the beach and 10 mins to the main Kuta street , but still quiet enough to be romantic in the midst of the madness that is Bali during Lebaran, The rooms were basic , the A/c was a little too cold and was tough to tone (which is a good problem) , the breakfast was nice , ample parking , service was average , but considering the place was very safe and secure and good access to very good bars and the Brilliant "take "overall defintely a place , worth coming back to everytime!

Room Tip: leave the room early and spend loads of time by the pool...simply awesome!

We stayed here for 19 nights in September 2011, and honestly cannot fault it. Breakfast is great if youlike eggs, but I substituted for banana pancakes every morning and was very happy. It is right in the thick of things, straight out onto a busy street, Y!! Sports bar at the entrance and Pavone fine dining backing on to the resort. We stayed in a Superior room, which was fantastic, but I thnk next time a standard room will do, after all, you are only there to sleep. Clean sheets and towels every day, which is better than home. Real value for money.

Before booking with Garden View Cottages I was abit cautious about staying here after the bad reviews. I thought, its cheap, its close to everything so why not. We arrived here at midnight and the staff were very friendly and had a choice to stay in the standard or deluxe room. There wasnt much of a difference so we stayed in the standard. It had everything we needed and it was clean. The towels maybe old but atleast they are clean.
The loaction is perfect it is close to everything, best choice.
The pool was clean and it also had a bar which was awesome.
The staff were friendly.
Our rooms got cleaned everyday.
This place is extrememly cheap - so if your expecting something nice like these last reviews book else where because i had a great time.
Food - I actually enjoyed the food, I came to Bali to try the traditional Balinese food, it was delicious, better off eating balinese food then eggs on toast as I can do this at home - or go else where otherwise.
People who made bad reviews seem to expect high expectations.. ur in Bali - A third world country, hostels and hotels I experienced in Aussie were by far WORST!!
If your a traveller and want to experience something on the cheap - this place is awesome :)
Thank you Garden View Cottages

This hotel is in a great location in the middle of Legian . The superior rooms are the ones to stay in .Very roomy and clean . Only negatives are breakfast is not soo good as others have stated and you only get 1 pillow each and that pillow is quite old and lumpy , otherwise the pool and pool bar and rooms are great and good for the price.

Room Tip: choose a superior or deluxe room , they have been renovated.

I cannot believe all the negative comments about this hotel! We (6) of us have just returned after a 10 day stay. 2 deluxe rooms and 2 superior. Firstly this resort is very very clean, the staff are fantastic. Our rooms where cleaned daily, and yes towels might be a bit old but so are mine at home. The grounds are very well kept, and pretty. The pool bar was always a buzz. Happy hour from 3-5 with music and plenty of atmosphere and cheap! Breakfast was great, not 1 complaint from any of us or any other guest. Made and dedek made it very enjoyable every morning. We have all been to bali many times and we found this to be 1 of the best. If your looking for 5 star then stay elsewhere, but for us it was perfect. And the price was great too. We all booked thru bookings .com no problems at all.

Room Tip: Dont go for standard

The good things about this hotel
1. If you are in one of the renovated rooms, they are large and nicely furnished with a fridge and flat screen TV as well as a DVD player. The bathroom is very nice.
2. Very friendly, helpful staff - except for one man who was on the desk when we checked in. He was rude and unhelpful - not appreciated after a long trip.
3. The breakfasts are quite good although a bit boring.
4. The gardens are nice and well maintained.
5. The pool area is very nice, with a swim up bar.
6. This hotel is in a very convenient location.
The bad things.
1. The mattresses had no mattress protectors - and our mattress was very stained.
2. The sheets always had stains on them - most of them looked like blood stains.
3. The towels were old. grey and thin.
4. We were in a superior room, $US60 a night and I don't think it was value for money.
5. The cheaper rooms are really horrible.
6. You have to use the air conditioning as there are no fans and the windows can't be opened.
7. The dining room is open sided - and all the motor bikes are parked outside - and the garbage truck comes in to collect the garbage!!!!!

Room Tip: Ask for one of the newly renovated rooms - but don't go there if you like clean linen and mattre...

I booked through Agoda which I doubt I would do again...I had low expectations & was totally prepared for things to be of a lower standard...I had booked & paid for 2 superior rooms...at no time for our stay did they have any superior rooms available...we were put into standard rooms which were very dirty...the extra mattress we asked for was not fit for a dog to sleep on...it was full of brown stains...there was bugs in the beds also.
At breakfast in the morning before I could comment on my poached egg tasting of vinegar & being inedible, the 5 year old in the group & the easiest eater said that their eggs were disgusting.
We moved to another hotel that morning.
