We stayed here with a small group of well-travelled folks. I was enchanted with the cave rooms. They are all different and just marvellous. Rooms are also decorated with lovely antiques and ours had a large whirlpool tub with a great view over the valley. All of the rooms are dug into the sandstone hills, so you are staying in a cave, albeit a fancy one. The drawback to this is that you are staying in a cave! It can be a bit chilly - we needed instruction on how to run the space heaters. Also a bit dark, and the sandstone surfaces do "shed" a bit - my husband came back to find some sand on the bed! But hey - how often do you get to sleep in a very well appointed and comfy cave?
Our room had a full flight of stairs down to the bedroom and bath area - and there are a lot of stairs and winding paths in the hotel - so be warned on that.
We ate two nights in the hotel dining room (restrooms also downstairs) and had a drink at the lovely bar with outdoor tables and a great view. The food was excellent and the service friendly and mostly efficient. Unique, and I would not hesitate to recommend it. Look for the resident tortoise in the little garden.
