The rooms are clean and nice, but a bit overprized for what they are and compared to other guesthouses. There is no rubbish bin and make sure you switch on the boiler a few hours before you want hot water. Water pressure is not great, but that is a general problem I guess. If you book a driver through them make sure, you directly speak to the driver and do not let them put the money for the driver on the room bill. In our case the manager arranged a driver for us, and didn't communicate our ideas enough, so we had a fight with the driver.
The location is away from town so make sure you have a print out of the map from their homepage. ( http://www.mountviewcottages.com/ ) It took our driver several phone calls to find the place. There is a temple accross on the other side of the valley, so you will wake up at five o'clock in the morning. Dinner is basic. Wifi is good and free.
Although they say on the homepage that they have any type of mobile and laptop charging facilities, they didn't have a micro usb charger.
