We booked our room via email with the manager. We had multiple emails from the hotel concerning our room, however, upon arrival we were told the emails were not a confirmation and there were no rooms available for us. The hotel apologized for the confusion, set us up in a room next door for the same rate and then moved us into an upgraded room the next day. The hotel itself is beautiful and right on the water. The ferry drops you off right in front of the hotel which is convenient. The restaurant is amazing and reasonably priced (try the lake toba snapper!). There is live local music on Saturday nights which was fun. The restaurant also has ping pong, pool and a tv to watch movies. We also rented a bike from the hotel to get around the island. Free wifi! The staff was very helpful, they even helped us book transportation and room accommodations for our next stop (Bukit Lawang).
