For £15 sterling per night with (indonesian) breakfast provided, this place is excellent value. Contrary to the prior reviewer I found the place to be kept very clean, and as far as the facilities go, everything worked. The AC worked, the TV with satellite worked, and the shower worked. Yes, the shower is of the Indonesian style "wet room" so everything will get wet. But so what. The water is hot and you still get clean. You have clean towels provided and a decently comfortable bed.
Furthermore the hotel has motorscooters for rent. I paid 75K IDR for one day. This gave me the freedom to go around town and also to go to the north coast to the beaches and to the place to catch a boat to the island with the lighthouse.
I found the staff to be friendly. Knowing a bit of Bahasa Indonesia will help you - both at this hotel and in Belitung. The island does not yet see tons of westerners, so English is not as widely spoken. But it was a fantastic visit!
