The location is breathtaking. The staff are friendly. The rooms are below average with a musty smell which is evident throughout all the buildings. The rooms have no air conditioning and only a small heater. There are no tvs on the site which would be fine if other things such as the pool table, which had no white ball and other balls missing,or the other facilities were in working order. The bar is warm with the log fire but has no atmosphere so once the sunset there is little to do except sit in the musty library. The meals are fine, coffee Facilities in the rooms are good The range of daily activities offered adds considerably to the cost of staying there although we did enjoy our walks and exploring the rain forest on our own. The tree top walk is great. Allow at least an hour on the Endymion road to get to the site but it is a great drive.
