Lonely Planet review
One of Myanmar’s great homestay-style inns; the Peacock’s main 1960s house is set in a tree-shaded yard complete with fairy lights, parasol seating and an old horsecart. Dated if fair-sized standard rooms overlook a lotus-filled canal but far better are the boutique-style 'deluxe' rooms: choose the prized upper ones with balconies.
Hosts treat many guests like part of the family, and may show you their fascinating old photos – ‘granddad’ was a British-era mayor of Mandalay. A full traditional Burmese multi-dish dinner is served by advance arrangement. It's rather far from the centre but bicycle hire is available (K2000 per day). Bring mosquito repellent.
Our independent authors have visited Peacock Lodge and selected this as one of our recommended guesthouses in Mandalay.
