I will start this review with my only criticism - the rooms are a little worn and the bathrooms could do with an update. They are scrupulously clean, but their age makes them look a little grotty, and that is the only reason I am not giving Melati 5 stars. Apart from that, I have only good things to say about Melati Cottages. The gardens are stunningly beautiful, the views across the rice padis are lovely and the location is handy to Ubud if you don't mind a bit of a walk or are prepared to pay (very little) for a taxi. The staff could not be more friendly and helpful, and the food is really good and great value. If you want somewhere inexpensive to base yourself for a long stay in Ubud, you could not pick a better place. Also handy to know that the staff will double you on the back of a bike to Ubud or Bintang supermarket for 30,000Rp return (about AUD 3). A tip to the management - spend a little on updating the bathrooms and you will recoup the cost in no time.
