Beautiful surroundings and perfect weather to relax and unwind. Easy access to the little Adams peak and very close to the Nine Arches bridge. Take a hike early in the morning as later and close to noon the sun can get too hot.

My family stayed for 3 nights in December. Rooms were allocated on a double and foursome sharing respectively. Upon arrival, found the location quaint, perched on a tea estate hill top and surrounded by tea shrubs all around. It was an interesting property and rooms were reasonably clean.

You approach up a dirt road and are greeted at a small office and security building. You climb small steps to the main...
