The rooms are very basic and have poor ventilation. This causes a musty smell. The rooms are painted in a dark red which makes them very dark. Restaurant on the contrary is marvellous, fabulous view on the river and the best food we had in Sumatra. Staff is extremely friendly and attentive.

We booked for two nights but only stayed for one. The staff and the restaurant food were both fantastic. Unfortunately the rooms leave a bit to be desired. The room was dark, concrete floor, no fan and the beds small with rather lumpy hard pillow and holes in the mozzie nets. Cold Shower only and it dribbled out so better... More

Great little lodge in tangkahan, cheap and the staff was very friendly. Food was excellent, only problem was that they could use fans in the room. The rooms are very basic, without hit water. The rooms have poor ventilation. Free bfast was a tad small

We stayed at the Linnea Resort when on our Raw Wildlife Encounters Tour (Jan 16). As a newly developed eco-tourism location, the resort was perfect - room's were basic but functional. The staff were so friendly and welcoming & the food was AMAZING. The river was right there - such a beautiful place to swim and relax. I would definitely... More

The room was quite basic but alright and probably similar to other available options. The view from the restaurant is fantastic. At the time we stayed here (december 2015) there were hardly any other guest and perhaps for that reason there where not many options on the menu.

We stayed here 1 night during our trip thrue Sumatra. very basic ecolodge:- cold water ,no ac, not always electricity, only wifi in the restaurant, simple restaurant. Staff in the restaurant needs some more training Perfect base camp for jungle trekkings, tubing or elephant riding. Basic, Clean, and very friendly, hospital staff. That is making a difference

Loved the place - only 3 years old. Really nice rooms and bathroom. The staff were highly serviceminded and really nice people. Choose a cottage and not a room upstairs The restaurant makes great food!! The river is in front of the hotel, and you can go and take a swim - really nice.

Just there for jungle trek and elephant experience, really great environment! We were impressed by all the nature noises and nice views. Lodge is ok,many animals (ants everywhere in room en bathroom). I missed clean towels. But ok, you are always outside so room is not important. Breakfast was really a small portion. Friendly staff!

We had no idea what to expect when we went to stay at Linnea Resort - we were just in Tangkahan to have an elephant experience - but it turned into one of the highlights of our Sumatran adventure. It's a long and bumpy ride from Medan to Tangkahan, but the welcome is so worthwhile! Our host, Beni, was so... More

I didn't stay in Linnea resort, but I ate at their restaurant many times during my stay in Tangkahan. The owner, Beni, was extremely kind and offered great service. The meals were great and at a good price compared to other places in Tangkahan. I tried most of their menu, and Beni even took me to have a look at... More
