The bus ride in and out is fantastic. Great driver/guides Christine and Kirsty provided a wonderful running commentary.
Considering the location, the accommodation was clean, comfortable and spacious. Restaurant was very poor - set menu with no choices and served "family style" which is OK unless the first people served are suffering from colds!. I don't like poultry which was a problem because it was featured in most dinners and lunches. One night they offered a pork tenderloin which was so tough it was inedible. It's takes real creativity to mess up pork tenderloin! If you choose the vegetarian option, you get the same meal without the protein. Apparently the only vegetable they serve is kale. Couldn't even get plain vanilla ice cream for desert! Bar snacks consisted of cubes of cheddar and jack cheese with a few crackers. Salads were OK despite weird blueberry dressing one night. Dining was not exactly what we expected.
Considering the $500 per person per night charge, they could do a whole lot better but without any real competition at the end of a 90 mile gravel road, there probably isn't much incentive.
In general, it was a memorable experience, especially with good weather for all four days, but a pity about the catering.More
