Hotel in a beautiful spot with lovely views but not worth the price. Limited amenities, all run a bit on the cheap. Greg is a nice guy and the place is clean but really it is pricing itself as something it is not. Other than being big and having a bath the luxury room has nothing luxury about it. We also paid a lot more by booking through Expedia - book direct and save $$. Don’t get sucked in like we did! Annoyingly the manager told us this after he had taken our money at the Expedia price and then said there was nothing he could do about it.
