We were unpleasantly surprised when we arrived at Lakeside Cottages. Whilst the owner/manager seemed nice enough, the hotel left lots to be desired. After being very unhappy with the run down standard room and wanting to leave, we were upgraded to a deluxe room, Which was clean but not much better. If we were paying maybe 100, 000 Rupees for the night it might have been less upsetting. No one around to serve dinner so ate next door. Breakfast also disappointing. The town in general seemed horribly overpriced. Definitely would not stay at cottages for that price - even if you need just a place to sleep - it is way too pricey. Sad as the view is beautiful and could be so much more. I would like to have known how expensive the whole town is and how expensive hitel is relative to say, Ubud or Candidasa.
