This has to be one of the best hotels of its class I have ever stayed in, so much so that I can't believe it hasn't won more awards...
Upon arrival, we were greeted by a very professional yet friendly Alfred and Jo Lin with rice wine and chocolate fudge, given fantastic advice, and then shown to our room.
The room was spacious, beautifully decorated and equiped with both a large bath and shower. Everything was perfect, from the lighting (with the option for mood lighting) to the bath products supplied (Tanamera). For the first time ever, I can't find fault with anything. I get the impression that the hotel owner has stayed in a lot of hotels herself, worked out what guests do and don't like, and applied it to her own business.
The staff were warm and friendly, very helpful, and assisted us to do a tour to Jenkar waterfall, which we both loved.
Location was very good- literally two minutes walk to the riverfront and in a central part of town, yet quiet at night.
I'm so glad we ended up staying here. We're both looking forward to our next visit!
