We had a so called luxury room. Main Problem lack of space for luggage. The staff was very friendly apart from the breakfast who removed everything while we were eating at 9.38!!! Bed very confortable, everything very clean and A/C worked without a draft over the bed.

I came to my childhood hometown to find with great surprise that a home I used to know was now the Lapha B&B. The staff were welcoming and most helpful. They accommodated our special requests . I spent my first night there as the only guest before others arrived. The office staff leaves at 7:30pm, which made me reliant on...

Excellent, comfortable facility for accommodation overall. Was disappointed at the lack of Wi-fi on the premises, although was informed it would be put in place within a month. I also had a problem with the shower head that was not working efficiently. Overall I was satisfied with the accommodation and service.
