Good location but showers are a bit dirty. Had to leave my shoes in the hall way and finally after 3 hours they were gone.


We enjoyed staying here, particularly because of the riverside location. The staff were helpful - in particular, a very useful town map with good cafes and restaurants marked was provided. The place is a bit rough round the edges but clean and full of character. The associated café down the road is good for breakfast, although there are definitely better places for coffee.


Very Nice place to stay, clean facilities and Beautiful house at the riverside. Staff is very friendly and the owners Son carson made our day Every day, he is really funny. Would stay here again, definitely!!

Step off the busy Chinatown streets and be greeted by a calm and quiet guesthouse with a balcony by the Riverside where you can while away many a pleasant evening in peace with only the occasional riverboat distraction. The nine rooms make the place fairly small and the rooms always seemed full so book ahead! Also linked with a nearby guesthouse and a cafe which offers a good mix of local and western dishes for good prices. As a final word, look out for Carson, he'll move the earth for a smile


Really nice charm to this place and right on the river.No real atmosphere though


Nice house and good experience here
