Steviej is right. The reviews you see for those two hotels (or anywhere else on Travelfish) are first hand accounts by Travelfish researchers, not promotional material from the hotels. We stayed in nearly 20 places reviewed and recommended by Travelfish during our last trip, and found the reviews spot on accurate.
In many cases, including with the La Villa Loti Coconut House, there are additional first hand reviews added by Travelfish memebers. This is about as first hand as you'll get anywhere. Regards.
For what it's worth, a Canadian friend had a really positive experience at Auberge Mont Royal. He said they bent over backwards to make the stay positive for him and his wife, who are a bit older. On his recommendation, I'm sending my mom to stay there in November.
I have stayed at the La Villa Loti Coconut House but not Auberge Mont Royal. I stayed there for 4 nights in February of 2006. Although I enjoyed my stay at La Villa Loti Coconut House, I think there may be better options.
It is a small guesthouse...maybe 8 rooms? It is quaint. It is one building (2 stories) made of brick & wood. Noise does carry. If you stay here, I recommend staying on the 2nd floor so that you do not hear foot traffic from those walking above. The garden is nice and the staff friendly. The drawback for me was that it is not near town (short taxi but not walking distance). I typically would go to temples during the day and then take a taxi into town at night. Around the guesthouse is a residential neighborhood along a canal/river. There are a couple of restaurants within walking distance but not many.
It really depends on what you want. If you don't mind being away from town, it could be a great fit for you.
