We started out on a bad note because I wired money for a deposit from the US and they wanted me to pay their transfer fee which I wasn't going to do and they relented. We had reserved 4 rooms for 4 days. When we arrived we were notified that Chrissy had accidentally overbooked one of the rooms and would...

Our personal view. We just stayed one night here as we were travelling. Dont know if its the right word but 'quaint' springs to mind. For those of you with limited walking ability, there is quite a steep path from the main body of the hotel to the rooms. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the setting enhanced by...

We had chosen this hotel because it has many good reviews on a tripadvisor. But I would estimate it no more than on three points. The hotel is located in the immediate vicinity of high voltage transmission line. The building with rooms is separately from the building with restaurant. There are a lot of the beautiful plants, all green, the...

Chrissie and Adel have created a haven of friendliness and tranquility with a very homely feel. The staff is super-friendly and efficient and their service is impeccable yet non-intrusive. We love the greenery and flowers in the garden and growing on the balconies. The menu is original and the food is delicious. The location is quiet yet still within walkable...

Fantastic Welcoming stay here. Had to arrive a couple of days early due to the strike, Chrissie was very kind & organised for a taxi to come and pick us up- a 4 hour drive. Wonderfully run, everyone who works there is helpful, friendly, & made me finally feel on holiday. Great view from the upper rooms, & lovely little...

Great value rooms and hotel. Rooms were basically furnished but totally clean and a really good size. Double doors opened up onto a balcony that had great views over the garden and into the hills. Excellent to relax and watch monkeys leap through the canopy. Most rooms have a balcony or outdoor verandah, apart from a couple that are back...

This family run hotel is in a great location, the staff are friendly and helpful. The room was clean and well maintained and there was a good supply of hot water. The restaurant on the roof serves a good variety of Indian and non-Indian food and their fresh French press coffee was so good after days of milky nescafe, not...

The overall experience at Chrissie's was very good, and I highly recommend it. The staff is extremely accommodating, the rooms are nice, great hot water, great restaurant with healthy non-Indian food choices, internet worked well in the lobby. The location is very convenient to walk to town.
