Very nice place,I spent just one night there.I arrived very late in the night by bus and the owner was so frendly and gentle,my room was basic but with a confortable bed and cool and also the breakfast was's so bad.You can have internet and eat some rambutan directly from the tree.The owner proveded to rent me a car to reach Ampana with a good price as well.Reccomended.

The accommodation was good. The breakfast was ok, but maybe could be improved.
However, we hired a driver from Toraja to Tentena, and from Tentena to Ampana through them and it was a bit disappointing because we had agreed we'd stop and visit some places, but he didn't want to... and we couldn't really argue it that much since we had discussed that with Ue Date, but not with him directly. This is a bit annoying when you pay so much money. So, one has to be careful with this..

Dear Madam,

Thank you for your feed back.

We will alert our guest in future before closing any deal with other party through us.

As to the case, We apologize for the inconvenience. If you recall our communication, those places the driver refused to visit was not requested when the inquiry were made. And he even added few more stops to the trip, with consideration about timing and road condition.

Please do accept our apology , and hopefully we can do better next time in assisting our guest's need.


Sincerely,
Sugiono

The previous article ( Erwin852) sums up the place perfectly. A warm welcome from the moment of arrival to the point that you leave. Well fitted (small) rooms with new bathrooms, hot water, a kettle etc. A pleasant relaxing dining area, where breakfast is carefully served.
Free bycycles provided and rental of motor bikes arranged for you. A good location on the othre side of the river overlooking the busier town side.

The best service we've had in Sulawesi. The manager/caretaker Eli is really doing a big effort to try to help all her guests (thanks!!). She can help with all kinds of questions and tries to make everybody feel a bit at home. Everything is very clean and well kept.
The breakfast is good, with toast, egg, coffe/tea and fresh fruit in the outside breakfast area close to the river/lakeside.
We stayed here a few more days than planned before to visit the Lore Lindu NP.
Nearby waterfall is 30 minute ride by rented motorbike (120.000 IDR) and a nice destination if you plan to stay here 1 day in between Togean Islands and Toraja.
Deluxe room (275.000 IDR) has private bathroom, basic accomodation has shared bathroom.
Further transport from/to Tentena or Rantepao can be booked here as well (if you're lucky you can arrange discounted transport with a private car returning to Ampana or Rantepao after dropping off his customers).

Definitively a recomendation!

Room Tip: Deluxe room (275.000 IDR) has private bathroom Basic accomodation has shared bathroom.
