    Uncomfortable Stay in Abandoned Hotel”

    My family recently stayed for 3 nights using 2 rooms on 4th floor. The property was deserted. Pitch black corridor at night going up to 5th floor for dinner one night. Restaurant not opened one night for no reason. Had to carry bags up numerous stairs. Not suitable for older people staying. Room not completely serviced. Coffee station not refreshed or towels and toilet paper replenished. Property is not a hotel as stated. DVD player in room but no DVD’s available to rent at reception. Uneasy feeling and room did not feel secure. Definitely not worth the money. Reception lady was lovely and pleasant. Dinner on night when available was very tasty.

    No value for money”

    Very disappointed in the facility. We stayed for two nights Room was not serviced after first night so we had to request extra towels and toilet paper which we had expected would be topped up while we were out for the day. Wasn't nice to come back to an unlaundered room. Shower was pretty grubby in the corners. Dead plants in room. No SKY TV. No minibar. Restaurant was musty and it was hard to tell how long food had been sitting there so we opted not to eat there. Cutlery included 2 teaspoons. Crockery included 2 teacups and 2 saucers and 2 glasses. No bowls or plates and teabags, sugar, coffee etc had not been topped up either. Iron did not work. Limited info on the nature walks. For the amount of money we paid, it definitely was not value for money. Would not stay there again unfortunately.

    Disappointed”

    We arrived late and the room was on level 1 but the parking spaces were so far away up and down steps. The chair lift didn't work for the 69 yr old who suffers vertigo...dining room needed an immediate decision re coming for dinner...wifi link was very weak and no drawers in room or cutlery several lights weren't working...if hotel rates as4-5 star then it needs to ensure that the service and specifics are relevant to that rating...disappointing...views were good. Family room TV reception was awful and no other option offered ie another room etc

    Amazing 360 degree mountain views with yum food!”

    views, food, laundry

    The views were amazing sitting high on the hill. The food was to die for. We had dinner and breakfast and they were so delicious.The chef catered for our 2 very allergic children and they loved the pan fried salmon and veggies. We had small children and the DVD library was free to use. The laundry was a great benefit and surprise. The rooms are clean but unfortunantly outdated in decor, but what this hotel lacks in style it makes up for in exceptional food and service, we were even allowed a late check-out at no extra charge. This hotel was a little older in style but a delight to visit that I am so glad I was fortunant to have. I would love to see this hotel with a refresh on the decor and then it would certainly be beyond 5 star.

    Very happy with the stay.”

    Big room, 2 queen beds, clean & comfortable

    Enjoyed the stay at the hotel. The room is really big with 2 queen beds, a shower room and another bathroom which will be absolutely useful for travellers with young children! Very clean and comfortable bed. The staffs are really friendly and helpful. We arrive earlier than they have expected and they allowed us to check-in early, and even offered another room for us to shower first when the hot water at our room was not ready because of our earlier arrival. Great value for money, very quiet and absolutely beautiful view.

    Peace & quiet aplenty. ”

    Amazing views & great Eco Philosophy. A lovely family story behind the dream.Chairlift to the upper levels a great idea.

    just one night's stay but memorable. weather was on & off but as we were in the clouds it made it all the more atmospheric. tv reception is poor but good range of dvd entertainment. the biggest room we have ever stayed in! (2 queen beds which were very comfy) and the art deco theme of the hotel suits it perfectly. this hotel has been a labour of love and development work is ongoing so it can only get better.

    Nice hotel with a great view on a mountain”

    Very modern set up and furnitures, very clean.

    The Hotel is situated on a mountain, about 2km from the main road. Stay here if you have your own transport. Room set up is modern, very quiet with great views all round. The breakfast is very good and yummy, $20 per person but it's all worth it! Huge bathtub with jacuzzi, very clean generally. However, there's no more hot water after we soak ourselves in the bath-tub, and had to bath in the cold water after that. Staff is friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay here! Will recommend to friends.
