Location is the best! You can have the best view of the sunset. The forest view from the room was good. The garden is lovely. There is a play area for kids, a library, gym area, badminton court, snooker board etc etc. Rooms are well maintained. Located very close to the tea factory and there is a hush-bush of the...

The staff are lovely, especially the team in the restaurant who couldn't look after you better. The downside is it is well away from the city, you really have to eat in the hotel, and. A quick trip...
