Lovely little place with helpful owners and friendly staff. We arrived 6 hours before check in and they gave us a free breakfast and got our room ready as soon as the previous guests checked out. Basic breakfast of toast and coffee/tea. Extra toast no problem from the nice Filipino staff. Just one note, we booked the en suite room,... More

We had an excellent room and the shared bathrooms are very clean (with hot water). It has a good location and the staff were very friendly. There's a good breakfast provided and a computer with internet.

With a rating of four and a half from 144 reviews, I was looking forward to our stay at Lavender. However, having spent a couple of nights there I'm afraid I don't share the positivity and really can't see what all the fuss is about. In my view I would say it was okay. The rooms were clean and the... More

We didn't have a window. Room was quiet at night. Free wifi and breakfast of coffee/tea/toast and bananas. Also had a free PC to... More

Stayed here a few times - each time in a different room. The ones on the groundfloor can be somewhat loud in the morning as the breakfast room is across. The rooms are spotless, staff is very friendly and helpful and they serve real coffee for breakfast. Good value for money!

However the showers were just next door and so it wasnt an issue - and the shower was one of the nicest on our trip! The staff were so helpful and friendly and the... More

I read good reviews about the lodge and they were true! What I really liked about this place was that it was really clean- no fishy smells anywhere, even for their shared bathrooms. The mess hall was also spot clean, so you can use it anytime even if you bought food outside. I found the personnel to be really pleasant-... More
