Staff were brilliant, facilities were first class and the view was fantastic, so quiet and peaceful yet so close to everything, breakfast was superb, the steepness of the property was quite daunting at first but when they drive you up and down the hill anytime you want it was no problem,

It is second nature for our staff to look after our guests especially if its their celebration of a birthday or anniversary. Even guests on short holidays seeking to escape their normally hectic working life appreciate the respect and sensitivity of our staff . The whole Ambong-Ambong team will meet most requests from guests with warmth and willingness. Thank you...
