It's a slightly different atmosphere here to the other spots we'd stayed at in the area, certainly no major complaints but perhaps a little more stiff.
We'd booked 2 nights as we'd been looking for a spot of luxury towards the end of our trip and while we enjoyed the pre-dinner cocktails, free laundry, pool & rooms we were a little disappointed by the lack of horse riding, (temporary) and mountain bikes, (permanent).
Our guide for the local excursions was a little unenthusiastic to say the least, although we'd been spoilt with those at nearby Surama. Several times we got the impression she'd rather be doing anything other than showing us around but we were very happy to see the nearby owls & mountain.
Colin has a lovely place but it does revolve slightly around him and his full-on personality. It's a personal thing but I didn't think it was neccessary that he accompanied us for every meal we had there but he had a lot to say and has a huge history of the region.
