Very cold badly needing refurbishment and food scarce ! Staff stretching portions. Then when paying asked for card number !!! Toilets dirty and smelly. Really not sure how this can be 5 stars !! Very odd having pool in hotel lobby area. Reminded me of Russian type hotel and staff attitudes.

We had a beautiful time there and we hope to spend many more beautiful days there in the coming months. The view is awesome and breathtaking and as it on a higher level, the mist envelops the hotel....

Location & Accommodation is excellent. Food taste not up to the expectation. If you travel by Bus as group, you may to inform hotel in advance to pick you up in a closest drop point, as the approach road is narrow for about 1KM & Bus can not travel beyond this point. CAR No problem.
