    The lady who works at the front desk is amazing! She is so friendly and helped us in so many ways! Aircon was great. Perfect location for exploring!!

    The quality of our room was very poor. There were gaps between the floor boards so we could literally see the people below us. Holes in the window frames so insects could come in easily. We had to erect our own mosquito net due to all these holes.

    We booked a twin room but the staff lady expressed concern that it would be very loud at night for us. So, even with a bit higher rate, she kindly changed us to a double room in a much more peaceful part of the guesthouse. Great service mind and hospitality! Couldn't thank her enough!

    Great location on love lane. Was noisy at weekend due to band next door. Beautiful colonial style accommodation . Nice breakfast and clean showers.

    Wifi connection is poor.
