You have to ignore the price when judging this hotel. It's literally on a mountain top, so bound to be dearer than otherwise. We found our room simple, but clean and comfortable, with a lovely view. The staff were welcoming and very helpful and it was one of the few places where we were able to get Red Mountain wine from Myanmar.
The only, very small criticism is that it wasn't made clear to us on check-in that we needed to book our meal in advance if we wanted to eat in the restaurant. Fortunately, we picked up on this from another guest and our choice of food was quickly served at the appointed time. Food was Ok, nothing special, but that's often the case in Myanmar.
The hotel is a few minutes from the Golden Rock complex, and we were fascinated by our visit. It is a very sacred spot and attracts pilgrims from all over Myanmar. This gave it a very special atmosphere at sunset, with whole families setting up temporary overnight camps around the plaza. The whole experience was a glorious mix of religious site and carnival atmosphere. Quite unique. Made the uncomfortable truck ride and the long hot slog up the mountain worthwhile. I doubt a daytime visit would be the same at all.
