What we say: 4.5 stars

As you enter Poom Village from the main road a sign reads 'Mrs Chung Welcomes You. Ecotourism Homestay'. This is Guesthouse 1 and, whilst one of the best homestays we've found, we're not sure what makes it anymore ecotourism than any other homestay. Still it makes it easy to find and what you get is a choice between a large communal room and two smaller rooms with pleasant views of the adjacent lily pond. As elsewhere in the villages, showers are communal, however this guesthouse had more showers than the others. The room and bathroom are all extremely clean and the seating area downstairs smart and unusually uncluttered. Plus English is spoken – not as common as you'd expect. Mrs Chung is building a new place next door which will have en suite rooms, and they should be ready by around September 2014, so worth checking out. Note though that Mrs Chung seemed reluctant to let out single beds in the dorm and seems to be angling for groups so you may be out of luck if travelling alone.
