An outstanding place to stay, thanks to the genuine welcome and attention paid to guests by Ajith and Ramya, the owners. Rooms are divided between the quiet old building and a modern three-storey block that has large wood-clad rooms on the top floor. All are immaculately clean and spacious and have tables outside where you can linger over breakfast.
It's up a little lane about 500m west of the village. If you need air-conditioning, there's an extra charge of Rs 1000.
