we stayed here for 3 nights in the suite room. We specially loved the view from the window, it opened up to a small valley. The rooms give you a spacious, old , royal interior. However, the food was only average for a veggie. Special mention for the taxi driver arranged for sight seeing, he was really courteous and helpful.
