GT Guest House is located approximately halfway between the city and the airport. Accommodation is very spacious with large lounge and kitchen shared with other guests on the floor, is immaculate and of overall high standard, with quality local character, but not what I would call quaint. Lee and her team are welcoming and also offer competitive transport to wherever... More

Excellent service and provisions, and they were always "right there," and frequently anticipating needs. They also understood Western expectations and approaches to travel and hospitality (not a given when dealing cross culturally as here). Well done - very well done!
