After driving 10 hours i arrived there to be told they expected me a day earlier. Obviously a huge admin error from their very unprofessional team. Worse is, even if i arrived in the day they expected us, we would have been sent to another guest house even after we made our reservation 2 months in advance.

I had the benefit of staying at this establishment for a week. It was really comfortable, except for the mosquitoes, but there were the necessary stuff to keep them at bay. The food was excellent, the breakfasts very very tasty and the suppers really good value. thank you to the whole team.

The reception was very warm and the entire stay with excellent facilities. I wouldn't ask for anything better than what I experienced. Breakfast was good, haven't had an opportunity to order lunch but I think it won't come short of the entire experience.

Although it was clean & neat it was shabby and in desperate need of a revamp. Courtyard needs careful negotiating to prevent spraining an ankle due to loose blocks and bricks. Peeling paint and wall paper in rooms and outdoors. Staff shabbily dressed. Ordered a toasted sandwich which would have looked more appealing had it come from a corner cafe...
