We stayed there for 3 days 2 nights over the weekend. heard good reviews about it and were looking forward to it. We did not stay in the main building but in the new garden wing that just opened a month ago. first impressions of the place was good. loved the furniture and the interior design of the house.
however what we found extremely lacking was the breakfast. the tea was diluted and the coffee sour. We even saw the milk being diluted with water. She even refused to cut more papaya when it was finished. it was this aspect that spoilt our stay. The only nice part was the kueh. those were good.
I got to say that chris the owner is very friendly and nice. he even gave us some of his herbs to take home.
Conclusion: if you are thinking of staying at cyclamen cottage, you would be better off requesting to stay at the main building as chris is in charge there. Wendy is in charge of the garden wing and she does not seem to be doing as good a job as chris.
