check in marred by an insistence on signing for a commitment to spend so much a day . the obsession with charges including an over complicatedchoices for menus at breakfast and an exorbitant charge for new year slightly soured an otherwise delightful stay except we never saw the mountain top in 5 days.
comfortable room with mountain view, garden and terrace(though it was too wet to use).Food in restaurants good but overpriced. poorly stocked shop for a hotel of this class.
service excellent.throughout. good advice on excursions. wonderful thermal springs, pools and beautiful gardens
new years eve dinner good with excellent band
