We (a family of three) stayed one night at Idwala Lam. We were given the warmest welcome, our rooms were just what was needed after a long drive, and our breakfast was delicious. We would happily stay at the guest house again. Thanks to all at Idwala Lam for a great end to 2017 and a fine start to 2018.
