a great last minute find. we booked in so last minute and were welcomed like kings and queens plus it was the holiday new year season and staff must surely have been wanting to go home to family but we certainly weren't made to feel this was the case - we seriously cannot recommend this place more highly - and...

This hotel is set in a very peaceful location and the rooms are really nice with an outdoor seating area, the bathroom was a little strange as it was down some steps and it got extremely hot in there, also the shower was open air, although there was some netting over the top I wasn't sure if other people could...

Because the booking experience was a bit, let's say, haphazard we were a bit apprehensive about this place but were pleasantly surprised and can only echo the comments of others. The chalet was spacious, comfortable and well decorated, the setting quiet and peaceful, the food was good and plentiful and the service very friendly. Given the fairly remote location our... More

Well appointed rooms and bathroom - although please note shower area is open to the skies and the mosquito net in ours Peacock was torn . Also we had a small frog in the loo !Balcony... More

My wife and I stayed at the ESH for two nights. We stayed in the air-conditioned Peacock chalet, which was roomy with an equally roomy bathroom that had an open air shower. There was also a deck at the back of the chalet. The service was excellent and the staff were always willing to help, e.g. tea in our room... More

Unfortunately we only had one night here though we would have loved to stay here longer. The chalets were spacious with a balcony on top, a terrace next to the bedroom and a tasteful decorated bathroom. You get privacy in your chalets and you can meet with others at the beautiful pool area. The staff was very friendly eager to... More

We stayed at this hotel a couple of days ago and had an excellent time. Oddly enough we were the only guest on 1 day and there was 1 other couple the other day. This place is so nice but limited guests. The service is very personal and friendly. The staff is really friendly and really go out of their... More

We have been there for 2 nights with 4 adukts and two childs. Especially the manager did a great job and never tried to sell something to us. He helped us a lot by finding the next hotel, organize a car and much more, so we really do not understand the other comments. Our bungalow was excellent beside the strong... More

As per a previous reviewer it was a shame that a place with such potential had such a terrible and dubious manager. The garden staff and especially the chef were very pleasant and went out of their way to help and be friendly. The manager just tried to prise as much money out of us as possible in a very... More
