The answer is...it suits my budget and it's in a good location. That's where the good news ends. At first sight this hotel looks good - it has a lovely, well-maintained garden and the building is in traditional Balinese style with lots of intricate stonework and lovely carved timberwork. Look closer and the flaws appear - much of the statuary around the pool is broken or missing and the rooms are dark and neglected. On this trip, our room was #4. The décor was tired and scruffy and the bathroom was unfinished - part of the floor was clearly meant to hold pebbles, but instead was just rough concrete (not kind to the feet!). The fridge was rusted and barely working and the bedside lamps (not matching) looked like they had been found on a rubbish tip. There was a phone in the room - I don't know why as it didn't work. There was a door to the next room and we could hear every word our neighbours said as though they were in our room.
One positive was the food in the small restaurant which was very good - however the experience was marred by the clouds of flies and the smell from the slime oozing out from under the kitchen and across the road. It is obvious that quite a lot of money has been spent recently on the owners' private residence located within the hotel grounds - it is a shame they could not have done some repairs on the guest rooms. There are several other small hotels nearby that are much nicer (and better priced!). Needless to say, I will not be staying at Puri Gopa again.
