I came upon this hotel during a visit as an evening dinner guest. It was wonderful... the food was light and always fresh cut. Perfect... when then heat of the day seems to take away your appetite during the Summer months.
Choosing not to rent a car with its complications; My daytime driver, Ahamad, was also a hotel chef and worked evenings at the Christmas Hotel. On our second day of touring during the mornings... he treated me to the evening meal complete with a pickup from Seven Arches Hotel (top of Mt. Olives) and a return FREE of charge.
It is always to be remembered as a soothing place to be... for me. I had escaped days after a service for my son, Dain who had been killed in an automobile accident in the States. 19 July 2009.
