I was there for work, stayed two nights at the Hill Rooms.
Overall, it was an impressive location for a resort, what with a river running right through it. You're in the forest, so the sounds and the sights are pretty. Service was commendable, with very friendly and helpful staff. Having chatted with the resort staff, I would definitely go back for at least 4-5 days stay and do all the tours as this is apparently THE place to see wildlife!
Note: Journey from the main road into the resort can get very bumpy. So if you are worried about getting car sick, do take the front seat and tell the driver to take it easy!
