4/5 Good

  • Liked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

This was a cool place to stay with fish ponds and animals all around. It was very close to the hot springs. The electricity went out on numerous occasions, to be expected, it did not dampen our stay here.

5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The place was great and the owner was very friendly and kind. We even got the permission to checkout at a later time as we were hiking to waterfall in the morning (and there were no new check-in for our room that day). The place is very close to Poring hotspring, canopy walkway, kipungit and langanan waterfall. The entry route however was not likeable. Passing through small stream of river, then hiking some uneven up-sloping road and some stretch of bumpy rocky paveway. Should be very cautious if you rent compact/compact sedan. Albeit that, it is a great place to stay.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Excellent place if you are looking something out of the ordinary. Serene surrounding and friendly locals. A retreat-like stay. Rough gravel road for about 2km and a hill (not advisable for low skirting cars). Beautiful place and breathtaking views. Farm-like place with chicken, rabbit, duck, and quail. Kitchen space with plenty of appliances free to use 24hrs. Friendly owners and staff. Quite clean room but limited space in room and small toilet. Hot shower. Very cold in early morning and at night. Fresh air and a fun place. No near food place. It gets dark and foggy at night. Better to be back at the lodge early as there are no street light on the way to lodge.
