10/10 Exceptional

Vashna was the manager and she checked in with us to ensure we had all the information and suggestions for a great day…. Such as restaurants, things to do and even got us a driver to hire for the day to take us sight seeing and hiking up around Cape Hope. I felt very taken care of. The wifi was great in our room and the little fridge with wine and beer was great too! The room was clean and i took advantage of the big bathtub including the bath salts 2 of the 5 nights we were there. Thank you so much Vashna and team!

4/10 Fair

Hire Car Vandilised on unsafe Road outside
Parking not secure and car was vandilsed while under the supervision of the manager at the hotel. Then no responsibility taken by the owner. Do not stay here if you want secure parking, its roadside parking. Also not '5 star' international level, even though they try to portrait themselves as such
