Stayed with family in room called villa with 3 bedroom...The booking process not responsive, the given cellphone contact is not cooperative. Being there during high season with amazing expensive price 5million for 2 days. The breakfast very basic and only 2 portion each room..children need to pay even for family room....not a place for family. You can get much better service in other hotel around. Definetely will not comeback for whatever the reason.

Stayed: December 2015, travelled with family

i found that hotel in the lonely island book and i was not deceived when i found it, they can rent you a motorbike so you can discover the island. the quality of the room are impeccable. mama thyesza makes you feel like home and always make sure everything is okay and is also an incredible cook. i stayed all the week with my girlfriend and for my birthday i ate fresh lobsters from the lake and she cook me a cake as a surprise for welcoming us. very kind! the view from the dock is incredible, and we were staying in a house full equipped at a very good price and at the night we were hearing the sound of the wave on the dock, very peaceful!!

Room Tip: ask for the house with the kitchen , at the night you hear the sound of the wave on the dock

We stayed at this beautiful Lake Toba frontage hotel in October 2012. It was really clean with comfortable new mattresses, very friendly staff and owners and a fantastic quiet lakeside setting. The lovely rooms start from about 100,000rp per night.
Everything was perfect for a relaxing romantic holiday and the owners are happy to help in any way they can.
It is situated only 7kms from busy Tuk Tuk which you can get to by renting a motorbike for 100,000rp per day which includes a full tank of fuel. This is handy if you want to visit some of the ancient stone tombs, hot springs, restaurants and other sights.
When you arrive in Parapet just give them a call on 0625 7000443 or email info@flowerofsamosair.com and the owner will pick you up for free. You can catch a ferry to Samosair Island from 8am to 9pm for 5000 - 7000rp.
The food here is also excellent and reasonably priced. I would highly recommend this place to couples or family's who want to stay in a place away from the crowds

We booked in advance to stay at Thyesza and were picked up in Tuk Tuk by Mama Thyesza after one of the friendly hotel owners in town called her for us. It's quite a drive (about 20 minutes) to Ambarita and there is absolutely nothing out there, so you need to expect that you will eat most of your melas at the guesthouse.

The rooms are huge and the beds are very comfortable. The bathroom was average and had some plumbing issues with the toilet, which is pretty common in Asia. You also needed to ask for toilet paper and even then they only gave you a little. The shower in the bathroom is cold, which is a problem in Toba as it's much colder than the rest of Sumatra!

The setting is lovely and the views of the lake and surrounding hills are beautiful. The swimming here is OK, but obviously the water is much clearer at Carolinas. The menu in the restuarant is fairly good and all the food we had was delicious. Often a lot of the items on the menu weren't available (understandably they are a little far from town but we were the only guests staying!). Also there is no wi-fi at the property.

We stayed here to get away from Tuk Tuk but there was really no need as we actually found it to be noiser here! I'm not sure if it was a fluke, but we had two different student groups come to stay during our time and they were incredibly noisy with music, mega phones and all. We also slept poorly because of the guest houses dogs. Whilst they were really cute, they seemed to be at the centre of some sort of all night dog fight with stray dogs, right outside our window. Not only was this noisy, it was also distressing as it sounded like they were trying to kill each other. We mentioned this to the staff and they just laughed it off.

In the end, we left because we couldn't handle the noise anymore and went into Tuk Tuk which we found to be way more peaceful.

One other thing to note is that they are happy to give you a transfer to the guesthouse but not so useful when it comes to getting back into town. They suggested that we hire a moto from them and drive with all our bags and then bring the bike back, not a very logical solution as it still leaves the problem of getting into town. Finally, we ended up paying her husband 30,000rp to get into town.

This place is OK for one night or so but 100,000rp is a bit overpiced . I'd reccommend staying in town as it's quiet, conveniant and the swimming is better.

Room Tip: Ask if there are any student groups before booking!
