    Enjoyable stay, with some issues.

    Our stay overall was enjoyable. The food at the hotel was good, really big portion sizes. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Unfortunately we had a few issues during our stay: The central heating in room was not working. The staff helped as much as they could and in the end, gave us the heater being used in reception. We also requested a cot when booking and while we were supplied a cot, there was no matress. Again, the staff did everything they could to rectify it and were helpful throughout.

    Comfortable stay, pretty views and tasty food.

    I stayed in room 8. In the bathroom was only a bath. No shower,although I requested a room with a shower. My stay was however comfortable. I enjoyed the room and the views on the mountain. Breakfast the next morning was tasty. There was a large variety of food.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Unfortunately: Never again!

    We had booked two chalets and wanted to have them next to each other. My request via e-mail was not answered. When we arrived one chalet had not been serviced, in the second bedroom one curtain was on the bed, the other one was partly torn down hanging from the rail. We were given another chalet where there were not enough towels. An appropriate number of towels was an issue throughout our stay. In one chalet housekeeping opened the cupboard and took out towels, in the other chalet the cushion was not on the bed but in the cupboard. Housekeeping opened doors they should not have opened at all! When making the beds the cushions werre thrown on the dirty carpet.The chalets are quite run down. It is a pity and a shame because the location in the Golden Gate Highlands is spectacular.
