I felt really conflicted by this place.
First, the good:
- magnificent bed -- goodness, like a cloud
- great, slick fit-out -- so smart
- beautiful foyer and indigenous artwork
- great service
The not so good:
- The location! In the middle of nowhere -- why put a hotel here??!!
- wrong room given to me
- toiletries were bit meagre -- ie same soap for bath and hand-basin -- I mean, how much does an extra mini cake of soap cost!
Overall this is a great hotel undermined by a lousy position.
