If you are reading this review, chances are your company/department etc has chosen to do a training event at this location. I had heard about the NCC years before I went there and it filled me with dread.
I cna say that it's not as bad as some people make out. It's not a 5 star resort, but it's not supposed to be. Yes it's remote, it's a 30 minute walk to get to a super market or other restraunts if you chose to, but there isn't much need.
The rooms are fine, not modern, but clean and comfortable and a decent size (try staying in Japan or London if you want to see what a small room looks like).
The food was good. I ate breakfast most mornings and it wasn't any between or worse than what you get at most hotels in the US. Dinner was usually good, the waiters serving the tables were fine.
The infamous Black Olive bar, isn't modern, but it has a good selection of beers, and Zack on working behind the bar each night was great, never waited too long for drinks. In the quieter times football and baseball was on TV so it was better than sitting in your room.
