The Nest is set in the most beautiful setting, The staff were friendly and the food was very good. It was my husbands 60th birthday so our table was specially decorated and the staff made a fuss of him, which sets The Nest apart from other hotels in the area.

The new owner has really turned this Hotel around from the the staff to overall general service. You can also expect a great dining experience. There have also been a lot of structural upgrades to the hotel.

Third time back at the nest and while we didn't rate it 5 as it still nears a little more modernisation, we love the nest experience. Hope the new owners continue to upgrade sympathetically. First time in a mountain view room and these rooms are definitely worth the extra. These rooms however do suffer a little from tv noise from...

Gorgeous views, delicious food, and a great set up. The front desk staff went the extra mile to accommodate all my requests as we had booked for a surprise 40th for my husband. Can really see an improvement in the grounds and rooms since we visited in Dec. Our room was spacious and clean. Really enjoyed staying at the Nest

Very friendly, welcoming, great value...upgraded and no single tariff supplement. Its a bit off putting to be asked to reach a target of characters to reach: one is more inclined to say what one has to say, and finish.

Happy memories of a relaxed, happy and peaceful stay. Our room was comfortable, private and met all our needs ( mosquito netting on the windows would help!! and something to put clothes on in bathroom). We had a lovely mountain view from our patio, so lovely to see the sun go down. Lovely river walks on the property. The meals...

The stay was perfect... Its just that the condition of the chalets can be improved... The towels are sort of old... Bath tubs not good at all... It would be easier to have showers than bath tubs... There were no laundry bags in the rooms, had to ask
