“Comfy Cottage but No Hot Water”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2013

This hotel is best for bargain hunters. Located about a block or so off the main drag, the cottages have a small pool, birds and a civet, and a little restaurant. Unfortunately during our visit, the electricity kept tripping off more than a dozen times. They definitely have an overload problem, especially when all units are full and everyone is running air conditioning. And there was no hot water early in the morning when we tried to shower before our departure. There is also a major construction project going on right next door, so the noise from pounding, grinding, and building goes on throughout the day. It was quiet at night, though. We did enjoy the little patio outside our cottage. And we were able to walk to restaurants and shops quite easily. Bring mosquito spray. Units have TV but no hair dryers. Wi-Fi also provided. Bring a flashlight--The streets are quite dark and uneven sidewalks are everywhere. Staff was helpful and friendly. Cottage did have refrigerator, too. We left too early to have breakfast. Near the hotel are small grocery stores for bottled water, beverages, and other snacks. Rooms were clean. Beds on the firm side.

I recently spent 2 nights here and enjoyed my stay. The staff were all very friendly and happy to help. The bedroom was clean and tidy, with air conditioning, a comfy bed and a nice balcony outside - perfect for reading! The bathroom was nice and clean and had hot water! The breakfasts were included and, although simple, tasted very good. There was a swimming pool and pool tabe outside, a library of books in the reception plus parrots and asian palm civet cats in the garden! We did experience a few power cuts here... One was overnight and did prove to be inconvenient as our air con stopped working! Apart from that, the home stay was very good!

Me and my husband stayed there for 5 nights with our baby last March. Did some researches before coming and chose this hotel among the others around Sanur. Upon arrival we were amazed to find out that almost everything there were beyond our expectations. The room was Indonesian beauty, spacious, clean, with foyer. Bathroom has no frills but decent and well kept. Got new soaps everyday.

The restaurant was small by the pool, but lovely and has familiar feeling. Hot water provided 24 hours, just need to bring the thermos from the room. Breakfast has standard choices with coffee or tea and u need to pay more if u want to pamper yourselves. We've tried some and they were unexpectedly delicious! Well, to our experiences most restos in hotels only 'pretend' to serve mouth-watering dishes by the pictures but then turn out tasted like made by kids. This so called-Cottage is no joking, for sure.

The staffs were friendly and very helpful. Moved instantly for any trouble during our stay. It might be small and budget and set on a lane 10 minutes walk from the beach, but we would definately recommend this one to all who wishes to find a quite and relaxing place like home. Lovely!

Set in a quiet area of Sanur a short walk from the beach and markets this inexpensive hotel is a gem. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable with an airconditioner and bar refrigerator. Altohogh the restaurant staff could be better trained all of the staff were friendly and helpful to us as travellers. We stayed for 13 days at the end of March 2013 and would recommend the establishment to all of our friends. The pool was especially welcome at the end of the day.

Room Tip: Chose one of the moderately priced upstairs bedrooms with a private balcony.

We stayed in a cottage in the gardens which were good and cleaned every day by excellent staff, problems with aircon sorted out straight away. My son stayed in one of the standard rooms which were better value. The down side was the power cuts at night which made the rooms very hot without aircon especially for my daughter in another cottage with a 15 month old. The breakfast was limited to eggs or pancakes unless you paid extra, 2 small rashes of bacon 15,000 rup. Ok if you are on a budget.

We stayed at prima Cottages for 2 weeks in cottage 3a well what a surprise this little gem is. On arrival we thought have we made the right decision and yes we did. The cottages are spacious, clean and have air conditioning. When we read the info in the room we where quite surprised to see the rooms where cleaned everyday towels changed etc. Breakfast was included nothing over the top but enough and the Banana Pancakes were great. The location is superb and quite, the pools is good as well. The staff are friendly and helpful. Looking forward to returning again. Just remember you are not staying at the ritz but a very comfortable 2 star property.

Room Tip: Go for a cottage with the air con
