Thanks to other reviewers before me. I got what I exactly read in Clear trip reviews.
Good looking & reasonably clean rooms.
Great view - it was hard to leave the hotel room in the morning as it was a life time experience to see the valley disappearing in fog once in every 20 to 30 min from your window while sipping black coffee.
Courtesy - Saff was very helpful and well mannered. They give first priority to Guest's experience than procedures.
Added bonus - They Provided accommodation and food for our driver so that he wont have to go out in town be available for us when ever we want to go out.
--Food was little pricey (around 500 per person) but not worth the money
--Sheets were okay but Comforter was very dirty ,
--The Geiger takes too long to heat the water(45 min)
--Manual room blower was kind of a pain to switch on and off in the night every two hours because it was either too cold or too hot.
But none of these issues except the dirty linen & Non Automatic room blower are real experience spoilers.
Oh by the way they charge too much for campfire and they got a good activity complex for kids.
Over all I would recommend the hotel for the price if they offer clean sheets. Once again great view and ambiance.

- Sterling Holidays Elk Hill is a small and tranquil set up with incredible views of the surrounding hills and valley.
