For the money we paid I don't think you can go far wrong with this place, it's close to town, has great views and the included breakfast was really good. The shower could have been better but that's a minor gripe in what was otherwise a very comfortable stay. Also check out cafe guru just down the hill, they work...

We stayed in Tea Garden Holiday Inn for 2 Nights. The stay was amazing. The Views of the Mountains to the Room which gave us new life during the stay. The place is quite and calm. They offered us Curd & Honey for the breakfast. Helpful staff. Best place to stay.

We Choose this place because we are backpackers. The Room Price for a night with breakfast was great comparing to other Places. It has a Good View. We had the Best Bed in our Whole Tour. It was a King sized spring mattress. Great place. Must Stay..

We stayed here for 2 nights and really enjoyed it. The accommodation is simple but you have all you need. It feels secluded yet within a 5 minute of the restaurants and bars. Our room was away from the main part and we had a lovely private patio which looked out over the green hills. Rooms are basic but clean...

Positive thing is the view over the area. But it is the worst hotel ever. Nothing is finished, it is discusting, not clean, staff don't care at all (except for the man in the house). It is to expensive for the area, they have simply given up. But the money they earn went for their nice new range rover..... They...

the room was very nice and we had a balcony with a beautiful view. but the whole guesthouse was seemingly neglected, the service indifferent and therefore i think the price was way too expensive... the atmosphere could have been much nicer had the staff been more attentive.

The road to hotel is rocky and the staff finally pulled luggage destroying 4 suitcases!! We had to pay for one muldy family room almost 160$ per night, and the...

Our first disappointment was that there was no accommodation available to our driver/guide despite being requested. We had two double rooms at the top so were grateful for services of friendly staff to take our luggage up the many steps. Our room, especially the bathroom was a but scruffy and the towels worn. However, the view was magnificent and breakfast...
