Fair 4.0
Nice place with notable problems
This is a beautiful place with nice rooms and good accessibility to Victoria and the rest of the island. However it is more of a homestay with anything else, so the relationship with the owners becomes central. The male host needs to lay off the invasive questions about where I'm from, who I'm with, where my name came from, etc. Also there is constant scrutiny of the A/C usage and there is very little bedding provided, only sheets. I left my room at 8 pm trying to find some kind of bed covering and after 15 minutes came across the very upset male host telling me that of course I need a bed covering if my room is kept at "ice box" temperatures. I had the A/C set to the exact same temperature as it was when I checked in, 25 celsius. It is unreasonable to deny people bedding in the hopes that they will let the room cook to 30 degrees so that they save a few cents on the power bill. Also problematic was the departure. I asked the night before for a taxi departing for the airport at 1 pm. Owners said they understood clearly. 1:25 pm rolls around and a family friend shows up in a Jeep instead of a proper taxi. I did not care about the 100 rupees saved since he drove like a maniac and I could have missed my flight. He was driving out of the lane for half the trip, and it wasn't to avoid pedestrians. It was very dangerous. Apparently you have to dial a taxi yourself as the owners won't.

Exceptional 10.0
Chez Lorna is at Quincy village which is about 10mins drive from Victoria - the city capital. Here in Mahe everything is just a few distance drive from Chez Lorna making it a place to stay. At this hotel apartment, everything ranging from view to physical touch is just a breathtaking. Lorna and Theo are just exceptional beings, taking time to educate and assist their guest. It was unbelievable the amount of energy these 2 people have. Perfect people for each other. They both ensured that our visit was seamless and did encourage us to sail across the Indian Ocean. That was something I would never dream of doing on my own, thanks to The duo. As time is always very short when it comes visiting a place like this, I know I have more reasons to visit again and Chez Lorna will be my host once more.

Great place to stay on Mahe
First off, just want to say a big thank you to Chula, David, and Vivian for a great experience at Chez Lorna! They are great hosts and have an awesome place. It's very comfortable and the balcony view overlooks 4 islands, which is awesome. Rooms are great too, and the staff is very friendly. Chula is there to meet you at the front door and get you set up in no time, and he's always very helpful if you have any questions. And David, thanks again for the ride brother, appreciate you! Also, the location is great because it's close to the ferry jetty and is only a 5 minute bus ride (or 20 minute walk) from Victoria. Chez Lorna is definitely the place to stay if you're Mahe!

Good 6.0
Average stay
Overnight stay before leaving for La Digue. No assistance was offered to carry our bags up the many many stairs. Room was average - open plan bathroom (no privacy), and ceiling boards in need of renovation. We were informed breakfast was not available to us as we were leaving at 7am, yet there was breakfast prepared for other guests. Maybe long term guests get a better deal? We are glad that on our return to Mahe when we are staying for another 5 nights, we are not staying here.
