Lonely Planet review
One of Myanmar’s great homestay-style inns, the Peacock’s charming retired hosts treat many guests like part of the family, maybe showing you their fascinating old photos (‘granddad’ was a British-era mayor of Mandalay). There are four spacious rooms in the main 1960s home overlooking a lotus-filled canal. There’s also a bungalow room off the mango-shaded garden, where tables are set for a well-prepared breakfast. In the cool season, three simpler rooms without air-conditioning (single/double $12/14) are available in an attached bamboo house. It’s peaceful and comfy without being posh. Great value. Get here by taking 26th St east, then turning north at a sign to ‘Hotel Treasure’.
Our independent authors have visited Peacock Lodge and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Mandalay.
