What guests are saying:
Rooms are clean and comfy. Shower situation was a bit strange because you have to use it my hand because it's positioned too far from the tub. But other than that everything was great. Staff are very helpful.

Just out of town, Hotel Brilliant is in a quiet location, away from the hustle and bustle of town where the noise of the boats can be a problem. Very friendly staff. We ate at the restaurant accross the road, Pawe Taw Win, where we had arguably our best meal in Myanmar.

Staff were exceptionally warm and made me feel pretty much at home. I had ordered their food and had it at the roof top terrace as well and it was fantastic. Hotel is cottage style and is a distance away from town but you can get a bicycle and easily explore around.

Enjoyed our stay, room was pretty and clear with good bathroom. Location a bit far out of town but free bicycles. No restaurant or bar at the hotel which would have been good given the location. Staff very helpful and friendly.

I loved this hotel, the staff were so kind and helpful, as i got very ill at the Inle Lake, and they made sure i was doing ok as i was travelling alone. Its a little far out from the village, but with a bike it was fine.

Really nice place. Staff couldn't do enough and fresh snacks and fruit each day were a nice touch. Free bikes and organisation of trips were really good. Myanmar hotels are not cheap but this is a good option.

        Brilliant it is”
        If ever a hotel had an accurate name, this is it. It was brilliant, with the accommodation very attractive and clean and staff who could not do enough to help you. The breakfasts were very tasty and of excellent quality and there was a good room service offering various snacks. There were also day trips on offer i.e. On Inle lake at reasonable prices. We had a great stay.there and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone contemplating staying in this area.

        Great price-performance ratio”
        Hotel seems to be quite new and is very clean, very nice surroundings and great roof-top terrace. The hotel is a bit outside of Naung Shwe, however they offer free bikes to go to downtown, so no problem. Front desk spoke very good english (rare in Myanmar).

        Inle Lake Weekend Trip”
        Although many reviews mentioned it was far out of town, the hotel provided bikes and headlamps making the trips into the small town very easy. The hotel is therefore set away from the noise of the town and has a peaceful vibe. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and the service was outstanding (which seems to be common in a lot of places in Myanmar). The breakfast was sufficient and very good with a nice plates of fresh fruit, eggs, toast etc. The rooms are sparse but comfortable and reasonable for the price. The hotel staff were helpful in providing information for where to visit and setting up the boat to Inle Lake - a stunning location to visit although bring a jacket if on the lake in January/February as it's chilly in the morning.

        Very Nice Experience Except for the Bikes”
        A bit remote but tranquil environment, Great staffs, Nice room (they even have a kitchen!)
        The hostess speaks fluent English, making the communication rather smooth. We were staying in a family size room. We had lots of space in the room. What amazed me is that there was even a kitchen for our own use, which was really nice. The only problem is the free bikes they offer...Since there's quite a distance from the hotel to Nyaung Shwe downtown, the bikes become an important transportation tool. Yet they are not very easy to ride on......

        Staff is great. Rooms are spacious and best value for money.
        My stay was amazing. I felt like I stayed with someone I already knew. Staff is extremely helpful and ready to help you. Bf is good with abundance of seasonal fruits. Also they offer fruits in your room everyday. For the amount I paid for the room I was treated like a queen. I don't think I would have got such service and attention even in a five star hotel. I had a wonderful stay and I owe 100% to the very hard working staff at brilliant. It's indeed brilliant..

        The staff of the hotels are very friendly and helpful. Will help arrange any tour or cab needed. Hotel provide free bicycle for guest to use during their stay. Located not at a very busy area of town. Very quiet and peaceful at night. Could go to their rooftop and just chill at night. Restaurant wasn't ready yet during my stay but provide individual breakfast for guest. Easy to cycle anywhere for food and just explore the town.

        Great new hotel at Nyaungshwe for Inle lake”
        staff, friendly, new
        Located just outside the main lake service town of Nyaungshwe, Brilliant Hotel lives up to its name with first-class service and a pleasant setting. Rooms are spacious, well-equipped and with nice touches, including a well stock fridge and a bathtub. Breakfast changes each day and is better than most you encounter in Myanmar. What stands out at Brilliant is the service, from the welcoming management and staff, to the attentive helpers who greet you when you return on your complimentary bike. Be sure to go into the main block building to the roof terrace for the views over the area. Highly recommended.

        Do yourself a favor and stay here”
        Staff, room, everything
        I had the best time staying at Hotel Brilliant. Special mention to all of the staff members who, despite our check-in and check-out at wee hours, never ever failed to show the brightest smiles and friendliest attitude. Even though we only stayed for 1 night and spent most of our time outside, they managed to provide each of us with a plate of fresh fruit TWICE during our time there, completely free of charge. They are truly an asset to this hotel and are what made my stay here so memorable. Location wise, the hotel is a little way out from the main touristic center of Nyaungshwe (about 15 minutes by bicycles, which by the way are on loan for free from the hotel too). But then it is a small town, and the ride back is pretty spectacular with a view of the corn fields and mountain ranges in the distance. The rooms are superb, too, very new and spacious. I had a little problem with the water heater, which when turned on causes tiny electric shocks on the shower head and shower hose, but only when you touch them and it's fortunately not conducted through the water. Having stayed for such a short time, I didn't alert the hotel management, but given the service I've received I'm sure they'd be glad to help with any problem.

        Lovely hotel, very comfortable rooms, gorgeous bathroom. Staff helpful and friendly. It is a little out of the main street, but there are free bikes and also torches for coming back at night. It's only a 10 min ride, easy and safe. Don't let location put you off. It's quiet and the hills behind are stunning. The hotel is new, but needs to expand and add a restaurant on the roof top. Breakfast was excellent. Wifi reasonable (for Myanmar). Like many hotels in Mynamar, it's a little overpriced however I thouroughly recommend staying here.

        You are greeted with fresh fruit and tea on arrival as well as when returning from a long day of sightseeing. The staff are wonderful they practically rush to help you at any opportunity and many of them have good English skills. The hotel is new and the rooms are very clean and large with plenty of space for luggage. Good shower with hot water. Although the hotel is a bit out of town probably 2 kms from centre not 7 kms on the Agoda listing, it is easy enough to access and the hotel has bikes that they provide free when going into town and charge 2000 kyat for day rental.

        large clean room, wonderful staff, great breakfast
        This hotel really is brilliant! We were greerted when we arrived with plates of fruit and snacks and cups of tea and fruit juice. Most of the staff spoke good English.Our room was large and spotlessly clean as was the bathroom. The staff were extremely helpful, arranging trips for us and even phoning hotels for our future stays. The internet was not very good but this is pretty much the same all over Myanmar. The only down side was that it was about 2ks out of town which is a bit of a walk but they did have bikes there you could hire (actually we didn't realise they charged until we got the 4000 kt bill when we checked out) We went on two trips while we were here and both times a member of the hotel staff came with us as an unofficial "guide" at no cost to ourselves, this was extremely useful as he spoke good English and was able to take us to places we would otherwise have missed. On our first trip whicha was down the lake, the manager of the hotel drove us to the boat jetty in town in her own car at no cost and picked us up afterwards. As for the hotel itself, much of it was brand new, the buildings and grounds impeccably kept. There was a lovely roof terrace where you could enjoy the sunset over the hills. If cou come ti Inle, you will not be disappointed if yo stay here
