We thought that this place was really great. Yes, it's a 200 rupee tuk tuk (ask to be shown the shortcut to go down to town - it's a 15 or so minute walk) from town, but this also makes it a little quieter and the view from the guesthouse is really nice. The owner is a real genuine man and a great host. And at 3000-3500 rupees a night, we thought it was excellent value. The rooms are clean and cosy. Yes, it can get cold at night but they will provide you with plenty of warm blankets. My only area that I could suggest for improvement was in the serving size of the food. Whilst it was all delicious, sometimes the portions were very small, although other times they were very large.
