Reviewed 2 April 2013

We stayed at garden veiw for 1 Wk in March, well we had a blast. Location is great, staff fantastic, rooms are what you expect for the price, but hey, you only sleep there.nice and clean except the towels :) all in all I will be back to that hotel in a couple of months. If your after the wow factor when you walk in your room, pay more and go else where

There's not much to it - Just some beds in a room.

Location is relatively good - on Padma Street near Kuta Beach.

Other than that, it's really just a place to dump your stuff and sleep.

Lock up your belonings though, and don't expect in a hurry (assistance with the safe, "extra" towels (they didn't give us enough), etc).

Be careful with check-in times as well- 3 rooms of us (7 people) were told none of our rooms would be available until after 7pm, when check in was at 2pm. Expect to be sitting around for a while..

We decided to spend our last few day in Bali at the Garden View as we were on a bit of a budget having splurged on other accommodation during our holiday and we were looking for something central in Legian where we could shop and eat without having to bother with transport.
The Garden View Cottages ticked these boxes and for the price we paid for our deluxe room, we were under no illusions whatesover. In fact, based on money spent we were pleasantly surprised.

Pool was clean, staff were friendly and the food while not the best we have ever eaten, was good enough to stay in and order room service when we couldn't be bothered going out. We were pleasantly surprised to find a DVD in our room - even if the TV' was rather small. Our only gripes were that no bath mats were provided and the tiled floors were extremely slippery when wet. Nor did our door out to our balcony seal properly and we had to spray for mosquitos each night before going to bed.

A lot of things around the hotel looked a little tired but you get what you pay for and in our case, we were happy with what we got.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra and book the deluxe room.

We returned from our 9 day stay at this hotel last week. We stayed in a deluxe room which was very large and had been renovated. It was clean and comfortable. We were one block from the pool and it was very quiet. This hotel is located one block (approx 200 metres) from the beach and within walking distance to many great restaurants and the nightlife in Legian. We found the cottages to be around an average 3 star with basic decor. The staff were fantastic and any problems experienced were immediately rectified. There was never a problem getting a sunbed around the pool and we particularly enjoyed the swim up bar with great staff such as smiley Agung Hendra and the rest of the team. There is a very popular sports bar at the street front of the hotel which has all of the sports via fox and there is even an opportunity to have a bet on the horses. They have bands playing there at night. The noise from this bar is not heard in the cottages. There is a air conditioned coffee shop across the road from the hotel that has fantastic coffee and food. The Pavone restaurant at the front of the hotel is also known for it's great food. Great holiday and we will be returning to this good value for money hotel in the near future !

Room Tip: Deluxe suites are larger in size and don't cost much more. Worth the extra $!

The hotel is in a good location & suprisingly quiet once you get in the grounds. The room and bathroom were both spaciuos and the bed comfortable. Staff got extra pillows as soon as they were asked for. Decor is basic but overall the hotel provides value for money.

For some reason I took an instant dislike to this place. We were staying for only one night on our way out of Bali and this was long enough.

The hotel is a collection of oldish twin bungalows (huts ?) and we'd ended up right at the back of the plot. The room was quite small - the swampy smelling bathroom seemed bigger than the bedroom. There was no wi-fi except in the area near the reception. The pool was dominated by a group of fat, middle aged and tattooed hells angel wannabes.

Cleanliness was only average, with some interesting dirt on the bedsheets. The bathroom appeared to have no daylight or ventilation. Dim low energy bulbs added to the depressing feel.

Breakfast was the minimum possible, rubbery scrambled eggs and cold toast.

The staff were reasonably helpful, the main beach and shops were close by, but there must be better places to stay.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else :)

Garden View Cottages are located on JL Padma Utara, just behind the Padma Hotel. It is ideally located only 200 meteres from the beach and within walking distance of the Kuta entertainment strip and the night life in Seminyak.

The cottages themselves are really no more than three star, however the price per night offers very good value for money if you are not seeking the little luxiaries that make up 4-5 star hotels. You do however get 5 star friendly service from all staff, who are always offering a welcoming smile whether you are a first time traveller or a frequent visitor to the hotel, which I am.

The pool is a great place to relax and get a tan whilst the pool bar is a good meeting place/rendeavoux point to catch with friends and have a cold (very cold) Bintang or cocktail.

Out front is the "Y" Sports Bar with as many TV's as there are sports. You can even have punt.

And then there is the Pavone restuarant with a good menue at very reasonable prices.

In summary, if you are looking for a nice relaxing place to chill whilst still being close to all the shops and party spots that is value for money in Legian, the Garden View Cottages is the ideal spot.

Room Tip: The delux rooms are the best option - roomy but not expensive
