This is listed as the closest accommodation to Yosemite outside of the park and it really is! Booked a standard room but, on check in, was delighted to be told that they had upgraded us to a river view room. 'River view' didn't really do it justice - the river rapids were directly outside the the back door of the room and we sat on the balcony for ages just watching them flow past. Room was large and comfortable with 2 queen beds, TV, kitchenette with hob, microwave, sink, coffee maker etc. Bathroom was brilliant with huge jacuzzi bath, 2 showers and 2 wash basins. There are 2 choices for eating - pizzeria and main restaurant - we opted for the latter. Although Reception said we didn't need to book, we had to wait for 30 mins for a table but this wasn't too much of a problem as we had drinks in the small bar. Food was a little disappointing - starters were good but both mains lacked flavour, even the shrimp curry. However, staff were very friendly and attentive - special mention to Gavin who demonstrated excellent customer service. We really enjoyed our stay here and wished that we could have stayed longer.
