Very comfortable and cozy environment, the fish burger is awesome, and ginger tea always the best!

After shopping, this is the place that definitely good for you to have a rest with great music in the restaurant too.

Loved the service, ambiance and especially breakfast, although we enjoyed many other many items as well. A great place to relax and even stay for the night. Fantastic host and staff.

Stayed here with a few friends. Breakfast was great and enough to keep us going as we explored the area by mountain bikes (also hired from Compass). We also ate some lunch and dinners and bought from the bakery next door and all food was great.
Although there is great ground floor accomodation available we were too late to book. Instead we booked upstairs which was adequate but very noisy upto 11pm due to next doors upstairs bar and the music 'fight' ongoing with other nearby locations to see who could play loudest music, however promptly at 11pm this was not an issue.
The hired bikes were adequate for the very low cost but were unfortunately not at all maintained, we would have happily paid a higher price for better quality. Joe the Singaporen owner is very helpful and we wold certainly return.

Food is excellent, service is second to none and location is central to ancient town. I ate here many times. Better than cooking at home. I miss it having left three days ago .

Good western food with big breakfast choices at reasonable prices. As we looked through the glass front door we watched workers and tourists alike. The natural log cabin structure made it feel cozy. They understood English and it seemed to be a centralized area for travelers to meet to review the days adventures. I particularly liked the DVD shown on the public screen featuring ethnic dancing, scenes in nature from near by spots but with 70s music mellowly playing. And they do have a Western toilet!
