                Great location and view, just a short tuk tuk ride into town. Very friendly, efficient staff and lovely food for breakfast and other meals (no alcohol though). There is a pool area to relax with a fantastic view! The room was very clean but was a bit disappointing in a few ways - had a lovely big balcony but absolutely no furniture on it - what a waste! Not even a chair in the room I could bring out and sit on. Also the wi-fi in the room was absolutely hopeless! (Wi-fi in the lobby was OK)

                If u are thinking of using the pool, please dont go here. It is dirty and looks unhealthy. Tv dis not work. Told them like 4 times. Different people came to see but nothing changed. Other than that it was ok. Nothing excellent but friendly staff. Good breakfast buffet. Only love station is omelette but overall acceptable. Rooms were clean with very few furniture. Clean bathrooms. Excellent breathtaking view. If i ever decide to come here it will be for the friendly staff and the view.

                Hotel location is good but road to reach to the hotel is scaring. I suggest hotel management to arrange a 'hub and spoke' service so guest can be picked up and droped at nearby town. I doubt if the hotel standard is of four star as everything is of basic. The bedsheets and towels were all tired. The manager first agreed to give us complimentary dinner but he changed his mind and charged us including the driver accommodation something that was disappointed. Otherwise we enjoyed our stay ànd a welcoming part of all the hotel staff.

                Don't hesitate to book this hotel, they go above and beyond. It far exceeded our expectations. The views of the valley are unbelievable, so make sure you get a room with the 'view'. Restaurant was very good, breakfast was very good. Staff are polite, helpful and professional. They are better than a 3 star hotel for sure.

                Kids breakfast is part of my booking itself and it is clearly given in the Hotel Voucher given by Agoda...Hotel Manager was arguing with me that I need pay money for the breakfast...He started arguing at the time of check in itself and it was very negative impression...I was totally disappointed...Also there were cockroaches in the room...Requested him to apply spray to clean it but they did not do it...Only good thing is that the rooms are bigger...

                Beautiful views from the breakfast area, pool and room balcony - if you're lucky to have one on the side facing the river. Room is spacious, clean, shower modern and large. And it really is just a short tuk-tuk ride from the town center - not a bad thing at all, in fact the little distance makes it a calm and serene place to relax. The only things that could use improvement: the wifi only works intermittently in the room (no problem in the lobby/restaurant area) also it would be great if the room had a safe. All in all I can highly recommend it!
