We stayed two nights on half board. The web-site makes this hotel look like it stands alone among tea plants. It does not. It is at the end of a road with buildings all around. The bedroom views have been completely ruined by the dining room and kitchen complex which has been built at the front of this "tea plantation... More

This "hotel" sits up a very steep road with a view towards the race course and lake. From the outside the building looks promising, but once you walk in you can see a serious cash injection is required to bring this to a level travellers would be expecting. We stayed in a room in the main building with a view... More

The trouble with having a generous lonely planet review and charging way over the odds is that everyone will be disappointed. This is a basic, budget stop that should be charging a fraction of the price and then it's guests would be happier. We had no hot water, no wifi, slept 2 to a (slightly damp) bed, the kettle plug...

The views are stunning, however that's it. Superficially the cantilevered hotel looks impressive, once inside it doesn't take long to notice the tired state of this hotel. The rooms are a good size and there are the bare bones here to make this hotel work, unfortunately the uncleanliness and lack of attention to detail makes staying here an unpleasant experience....

We travelled there as a couple. The place is located at the deadend of the road. Access roads are bit narrow. Seems like a old bungalow or a house was converted to a hotel. Old furniture and wall everywhere. We stayed at room 101 and it doesn't have a continuous hot water supply. Cable TV was not working during our... More

I would give Tea Bush 3.5* if Tripadvisor allowed half points. We stayed for two nights in one of the hotel's deluxe rooms, which is in a separate building and not part of the historic older bungalow. The room was clean and well equipped, but was really small. The room contained a very very large bed and as a consequence... More
