On arrival after a long drive, our first impressions were underwhelming. The place needs a good upgrading externally, especially given its great location right on the Merced River and really close to the Park entry gate.
However, reception was welcoming and efficient. We were fortunate to be upgraded to a king room with in-room spa, a lovely gas fireplace, huge granite-lined double shower, kitchenette, loads of space and a magical river view balcony! All decorated in keeping with the environment. The spa is just wonderful after a heavy day's hiking in the Park.
The restaurant, although operated separately, is inviting and good value.
Unfortunately, no cellphone reception and wi-fi is only available in the lobby as an expensive extra.
