This is further emphasised by its location: docked near the JEATH war museum, it's the only accommodation in this part of town. Perhaps because of this, it has an air of abandonment: the lobby is cluttered, the bathrooms are grungy, and the rooms are a bit dusty, but they have woven bamboo walls, small balconies and a charming country cottage sort of feel. The English-speaking owners are very friendly, the food is reported to be outstanding, and the place almost has the casual feel of a homestay. Guests are given a notebook and trusted to write down any beverages they take and then settle up for everything at check out time. Though the owner seems a little resigned to his lack of guests, he's committed to maintaining value for money accommodation and it's refreshing to find a warm and genuine vibe in a town with a lot of hotel staff who seem to care less about their customers.
