Maybe the rain and being ill here clouds my judgement. It was basic at best. Got bitten by things in the bed. Views were lovely, owner helpful (to his benefit), we ate toast and soup in the 'restaurant' for the 3 days there. Soup was good. We had a driver who was excellent. He's a family member/friend of the owner....

The room wasn't very modern but clean. The views were breath taking. The staff were very friendly and ever so helpful when we couldn't get a train to Ella. They also gave us information about tours and locals. Food served in cafe was very tasty for snacks and sandwiches.

I initially booked 3 nights and later cancelled the first night. The owner emailed a week before arrival saying that there was a "problem" with my room and as such would be moved to their other building around the corner. I agreed as I thought it would be of a similar standard as Blinkbonnie Inn. The other place turned out...

I was a female solo traveler and I have to say that I am very grateful to Stephen at Blinkbonnie for his suggestions, tips and organization for me during my trip.

The proprietor at this property os extremely welcoming and has excellent English. He will collect from the town centre as well which would be very welcomed after a long bus journey (if only we had known!) The first thing he did was warn us of all the scams and advised how much Tuk Tuks should cost etc which was great....
