We stayed here three nights and very much enjoyed it. We asked to see the available rooms on arrival and were surprised by the variation in size. Some had room for a desk and chair and others did not .The rooms on the pool side have balconies whilst most of those on the rear side look out at the wall of the next-door building. All the rooms are beautifully finished in local woods. We ate in on one evening and had a good , but comparatively expensive, Indian meal. The breakfast was excellent. The staff were all very kind and helpful . The pool is small and rather public.The happy hour was a nice feature and we found several good restaurants within walking distance .
