Nice Place, moderately priced Apr 16, 2010
We stayed here when we first got to Samosir island, mainly because it was where the ferry dropped us!

Our room was pretty nice, with a balcony and a great view. We had no problems with the staff, and the computers there were handy. The food was also good, but maybe a little overpriced (though we didn't realise this until we'd been to a few more restaurants in town, because it's still very reasonable)

The main reason that I moved on from this place was that it really lacked privacy. The ferry seems to be going past constantly, and there are always other guests out beside the lake, or on their balconies. On the other hand, very convenient for when you need to take the ferry!

After a gruelling journey to get there and a nights stay on the mainland, we finally arrived on Samosir island and checked out some rooms at samosir cottages.

The rooms were brilliant, for 5quid a night we had a room about 2 metres from the lake, with a big bed,veranda and best of all a bath.

Samosir was stunning and the grounds of the place amazing. You could literally open your door in the morning take two steps and jump in the lake for a swim.

They also have a restaraunt upstairs that serves excellent food and drinks at good prices. With an amazing chilled out feel. I highly recommend the banana and chocolate milkshake.

One of the best places i had stayed on my trip!
