4/5 Good

Fantastic location, nice amenities, good food/bar options, friendly staff. Only down side was that the ceiling in our room leaked (it rained very heavily)

3/5

Views were amazing, but when we arrived we had to ask for towels for our room. Because the semifinals of the rugby were on we asked to be shifted from the room that protrudes into the bar area for the noise of bar patrons. Lady behind desk wasnt accommodating and a bit sarcastic. The first shower was lovely and hot, but next one was freezing cold. The next morning tried to have another shower, but still freezing cold. When i spoke to the manager she did offer another room key for a room that would have a hot shower, so rating is higher because of that.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect location for our day hike the next morning!!! Also very accomodating with late night bar-snacks. Loved the community space vibe at night and the piano.
