Tea Bush Hotel is atop a small hill with fantastic view. It is a small colonial style hotel and often in the background of mist. Our family had 2 rooms; one larger with a (mock) fireplace and one slightly smaller. One cannot expect luxury at this hotel but the rooms and beds were quite comfortable. The WIFI was working well...

Nice hotel in colonial style (e.g. with the largest bed I have ever seen), clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly, but a little bit distracted. There was no problem, but for 92 USD for a night it should be better.

Staff is very hospitable, food is very delicious, property & garden should be refurbished, amenities should be replaced with new ones, bit far from the city center, but aerial city view at night is nice, overall there was a good atmosphere.
