This is a beautiful hotel central to the Amber Mountains with it's own private forest reserve.
Our bungalow was immaculate and surrounded by gorgeous gardens that were full of orchids and wildlife.
The restaurant is sublime with spotless kitchens, excellent service and suberb food. My husband and I both enjoy good food and the cuisine here was not only an unexpected delight by any standards but positively miraculous given the location.
The owners of the hotel are totally commited to conservation and rightly proud of their ongoing work in their reserve. I recommend a night walk, a fantastic experience, far far better than the night walks at Perinet.
The level of customer service provided by the owners is above and beyond anything I have experienced, having run out of cigarettes one of the owners kindly donated a few packs of her own to save me having to experience the local brands. Nothing was too much trouble and it was a pleasure to spend time in the (reasonably priced) bar with such delightful, interesting people.
This is not a cheap place to stay but in some cases you get what you pay for and this hotel is worth every penny.
