Loved our stay at Garden Inn made all the more pleasurable because of the staff, especially Pino. They create a fantastic atmosphere and are so helpful. They arranged our jungle trek with Sinan and Angaar and were always on hand to help. Food great too. Panoramic rooms very comfortable. Definitely recommend.

My friend and I stayed at the Garden Inn for 8 days in early March 2016. I didn't remember to write a review at the time, but the Inn has since created a Facebook page and clicking through the stunning photos I was reminded of how wonderful our experience was and how I should be spreading the Garden Inn word!...

The food, the position, and the staff all convene to make a visit to this place a memorable experience. The food is clean, in plenty, and gives the visitor a simple, no-frills, taste of Indonesia. My daughter, whose tastes are not that exotic yet, was happy with the simple and tasty spaghetti bolognese, nothing fancy, just right for a seven-year-old....

We stayed for 3 nights, with a view across the river to the National Park. We had a trek into the park with a local guide and saw 12 orangutans! We got a bit muddy and hot so the cold water showers were not a problem. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced. Thoroughly enjoyable.

During our stay in Bukit Lawang we ate at Garden Inn a couple of times (due to a recommendation from our hosts). It's good is good but the main selling point is its relaxed atmosphere. I would visit again on return.

There is no doubt that Bukit Lawang is a place, you can spend much more time than a lot of tourists do, but especially Garden Inn can become a second home, when spending more time there. The owner as well as the staff do everything possible to make you feel comfortable, take you on rides through the villages, to the...

I'm using this place for a review of restaurant only. We dined there on our first evening in Bukit Lawang. Food was very good, especially curry with chicken. We also had juices and cannot say a bad word about them. One guy from the restaurant staff was however bit too "friendly" and tlkative, joining us at the table while we...

Two nights. Far end of town makes it a quiet spot unless some 20 something girls come banging into the room next door completely ratted at 3am. The staff were excellent, friendly and helpful and the food was fine. The high rooms have good views of the rainforest and the river but it is a touristy spot that must be...

The locations of the accomodation is great. Its a bit outside of the town so its quite and you are almost within the jungle. You can swim in the river nearby or just relax in the hammock in the chairs at the veranda. The food is really delicious and the staff is absolutely friendly, helpful and lovely. We give 4/5...

We stayed at the highest room - the two storey hut, so there were a lot of stairs but that's the way to get the best view!. Not only the view of the jungle, the river and the garden but also Macaque monkeys sighting.. every morning at 6AM we saw them marching on the power cable and jumping around the...
