                  Rooms were clean and well decorated. Restaurant has stunning view. Sadly didn't get to use the on-site Spa. Staff were really helpful. Will be back!

                  Room was great. Loved the garden and view of the bush and mountains.Wait staff were very friendly but could be better trained, and the lady in charge also seemed to neglect things: e.g. there was still a plate of prawn shells on our table, while we were having dessert. One does not want the smell of fish while having dessert.

                  Super, comfortable and relaxing and awesome staff who went out of their way to assist us due to mobility health issues. Caring and very considerate.
