Quiet with Fantastic Views

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 6 May 2023
Very quiet hotel with spectacular views of the night sky. The rooms were nice!

The hotel concierge was very polite and helpful! He even made us a map showing us some recommended hikes!

We really enjoyed our stay!

Where do I start….5 stars all round.

We originally booked to stay here in 2020 but COVID-19 scuppered that plan! This hotel honoured our booking and we have just visited in April 2023. Communication via email was excellent.

The rooms are well appointed, spacious and have good quality furniture. The spa bath is a nice touch too.

Louis provided an easy check-in process and was very knowledgeable and welcoming. We thoroughly enjoyed our continental breakfast which was good quality too.

Yes the motel is a little more expensive than others and it is out of town but I would highly recommend and we would stay again.

Such a beautiful room and convenient location with fabulous grounds and views. Huge room with huge comfy bed, windows and bathroom , everything felt very new. Great staff always available to help and chat. Didn’t try breakfast . If we had stayed longer than two nights would have missed a wardrobe, just a coat stand for all your clothes. But kettle and fridge and glasses etc , dining table and chairs, easy chairs, fire and big TV . Delighted

Room tip: Limited hanging space in room for clothes.

Very beautiful,,modernized and excellent resort right outside the main town,,you will get a good breakfast but will have to go to town for lunch and dinner and will also have to hire a cab for that to and fro. Rest rooms are excellent and views are to die for,,

Hi Narinderb, thanks for the review. Most of the local restaurants have free courtesy pickup and drop off service.
There is also a shuttle service but no cabs. Great to hear that you enjoyed the rooms, bathrooms, and views.
Hope you can come back some day!

Nice enough hotel and glad we were lucky to have a view of the garden. Bit out of town and not really walkable. Breakfast was very basic and not much of it. All in all overpriced for what it was. Very clean though.

Nice setting, however the location is too far out of town. No air conditioning, no fly screens on windows and no insect spray! So unable to sleep with window open to get any airflow due to heaps of mosquitoes. The room was stuffy and suffocating as a result. Due to these issues we think the room is very overpriced.

Hi Adventurer, during very warm weather I would recommend a luxury room with air-conditioning, or open windows with no lights on, as sometimes midges are attracted to the lights. Luckily it gets dark very late in summer.
The location is a 5 k drive to the village, guests love the peaceful garden setting so most don't mind the 5 minute drive.
Thanks for staying with us.
Thanks for taking the time to place a review.
