Me and a friend went to Parys for 2 nights and stayed at this beautiful guesthouse. After reading reviews of water issues I phoned and was assured the problem was sorted out. This was indeed the case as we had no problems whatsoever! We were immediately greeted and shown to our room on arrival by the manager. She is very...

Whilst beautifully decorated, with large rooms and a beautiful garden there are serious water issues at this guesthouse. Baths or showers seemingly cannot be used in more than one room at a time! Despite informing staff on the night as well as management the following day no real acknowledgement of the issue was made. Being left with a trickle of...

Dear Pranesh, Thank you for your review. Each room has it's own geyser and filter system giving guests clean water. Owner was on site when your problem occurred, staff checked out your complaint and found that there is no problem. Your water pressure might not have been what you are used to, but rather have clean water than murky water....

As this is a legal matter, I feel we have addressed your party of guests accordingly, but to no avail. Best Regards,...

Had an awful one night's stay here. We had low water pressure to absolutely no water. No hot water either. Owner was not on site and refused to rectify because if water was trickling out the taps there's nothing wrong. Rowdy guests in early hours of morning just made terrible stay worse. Avoid if you're looking for R&R and a...

Room was lovely. We arrived at 4.30pm and the staff left at 5pm! It was not clear from the website there would be no restaurant / bar facilities. We had driven for 8 hours and had to go out again to find a restaurant. It was more about the decor than the customers!
