I stayed a night late November and I was the only guest in the hotel with an non-English speaking guard. The room was spacious though a bit dark (fitted only with a 20 watts bulb so there was no reading possible). The room was clean and the house a nice mansion. Unfortunately there was no WiFi, well in theory there should have been but someone would need to come in and fix it which never happened. The location was pretty good, and though I took a Tuk-Tuk it's only a 15 min walk from the center.
Also I need to mention that another guard tried to charge me 3,000 Rupees the next morning instead of the 2,500 Rupees agreed on check-in, and it took a few phone calls and a longer wait to clarify the situation. I suggest to get the room rate confirmed in writing after check-in.
