The view was good and we were taken in by the posh decor and spacious balcony when viewing the room. It was 40 degree c and later we realised to our dismay that the decorative ceiling fan was simply inadequate (especially when you lower the mosquito net over the bed) i.e. no air- con. The fan was so noisy. We had to leave balcony door and windows open to let in some air (and mosquitoes). It was rather pricey when compared to other b&bs but there was no fridge or tea tray in the room. Between 7 p.m. and midnight (when I gave up trying) there was no hot (or tepid) water for a shower. As there was no light downstairs, we did not venture to the owners living quarters to seek assistance - believing hot water had run out so patiently tested the water every hour. We also noted a prevailing smell of cannabis. Do not order sausages with your breakfast unless you like 'Wall's sausages'.
