We stayed here recently for 4 nights on a mixed work-holiday trip. We'd read the mixed reviews on here and weren't sure whether to go for it, but in the end the decision was made for us when we were booked in by a colleague.
Not sure what to expect, we were pleasantly surprised by what we found. The room isn't amazing, but it does the job with a double bed, mosquito net, fan and TV. It was noisy at night but nothing we couldn't put up with.
The hotel itself is 'shabby chic' in the true sense of the word. A thick layer of dust covers many of the nick-nacks that line the walls, but not to the extent where you feel dirty. The mis-matched chairs everywhere make great places to sit quietly and read, especially in the real sun-trap of a courtyard. The real downside is the busy road out to the front which really takes the shine off sitting in an otherwise lovely front garden.
The food was great, though expect HUGE portions. There's a good range for both vegetarians and meat-lovers alike and we can vouch for the cocktails too.
Yes, this place may be a little rough around the edges but in the end we enjoyed our stay.
