Me and my husband stayed here only 1 night and we were the only guests in the Hotel. In the evening they made coffee and tea for us. That was nice. The rooms were clean and big. Breakfast was enough. Butter , cheese, honey and omelette. There is a place in the garden which you can watch the sunset. It was nice.
We stayed at oriental nights rest house for one night, as a stop over before we drove to the coast. The room was clean and had everything we needed for one night. For dinner we were able to order food at the reception which was also very good and only cost us 7 OMR. The staff was also very nice and open, we even got tea and coffee to the room by the receptionist. All in all this place is quite underrated, with 55 eur per night for a double room it offered a lot.
I chose this as the place to stay the first night on a loop trip from Muscat down to Sur and then up again toward Nizwa. It seemed to be located far enough from Sur to save me some good travel time on Day 2, but not too far to make Day 1 too long. I could have traveled another hour or two northward, but that is with hindsight. The room was clean and nice. The bed was comfortable. The a/c worked well. There is a hot water heater in the bathroom; just remember to turn on the power switch for it. I slept well without having to use earplugs. The owner was very generous by giving me 4 bottles of water when I asked if I could buy some. He and his family were eating in the restaurant, and the food smelled very good (although I did not eat there myself). The biggest problem is that the property essentially does NOT have WiFi. They have some kind of WiFi service, but it works only in the lobby, and it really doesn’t work well enough there to fool with trying to use it. It connects, but seconds later disconnects, and it repeats that over and over and over. I really needed to deal with some travel plans for Friday, but it was impossible. Part of the problem may have been that as soon as they connected the WiFi for me, two of the employees were there using their phones, so it was a bad connection that was then being shared by 3 of us with the employees taking up bandwidth that meant I, as a guest, could do nothing. I gave up and told them that if it doesn’t stay connected, they might as well not say they offer WiFi.…
Super friendly staff. The cook is from Nepal. The price on booking websites was half what they offered at the desk. Clean rooms. Undergoing renovations that will freshen it up. Stayed two nights and used it as a base for Wadi Bani Khaled. Super satisfied.
We stayed for one night, a transit in our trip from Nizwah to Wadi Bani Khalid. Despite it was a short stay, it was so remarkable in our tour in Oman; thanks to Mohammed Alhajri, the hotel owner. The hotel has apartments of spacious and clean rooms and expected amenities. The owner works at the reception, and he left his dinner to meet and greet and show us our apartment, and we've done the paperwork later. The owner runs car trips to the dunes of Wahiba Sands before the sun rise, and I can't describe how beautiful to join him in this adventure. I've got some of the most amazing pictures from where he showed us around in the dunes.
