We arrived in a bank of low cloud following a fruitless stop for the view at God's window, the window cleaner had gone awol. The main hotel building was just warm enough but the stove in the cottage had to be lit with all speed to clear the dampness from the room. The bedclothes had to be thrown back to air the bed and no firelighters or clear instructions for using the stove were provided. Misty Mountain could learn a great deal from the experience at Knysna Hollow, see my later review. Dinner was utterly charmless a request to go a-la-carte was dismissed out of hand and after a long wait the service was part shoulder-check, do you have to bump into me every time you pass or serve, part surly. One out of eight hotels during our tour where I found the service poor. Considering the weather, lighting the stoves in anticipation of our group arrival, might have warmed the welcome.
