Rather reminiscent of a good English B & B with the added added serenity of country and mountain views. Sampled not only the English breakfast but an evening meal, both were great. Local...

The reward for the off-the-beaten-track location is peace and a beautiful setting with wonderful views. The bungalows are very nice and comfortable with a high build...

“All three rooms are excellent and are away from the house and are all detached from each other so you dont have to whisper in your room if you keep the windows closed and the air con on, All beds are king size and very comfortable, All rooms have tea or coffee making facilities in the room and fridge, and free WI FI, as with all Asian houses you have to remove your shoes when you go into the room and the the breakfast area”
