Overall definitely an excellent getaway
World Traveller (India)
This hotel has recently been renovated, and they have done a splendid job. The best part of the place is the view. We got a corner room that overlooked Sydney point. It gave us the best view of the sunsets. The rooms were spacious and clean. The floor to ceiling windows offered spectacular views throughout the day. The shower cubicle was very narrow so you have to squeeze in it.
They also have some private cottages located near the cliff edge (with adequate safety precautions). They are luxurious and secluded...ideal for couples. They also have a nice sit-out area from where you can look at the valley.
There are two tennis courts, an indoor game center and a spa at the hotel. We tried out their spa. The ma**age was good (not great). It can be tried after a long day of sightseeing.
Just next to the hotel, on the cliff, operators provide a chance for paragliding. If you are afraid of heights, you can sit out in the lawn and watch other paragliders sail by over the valley.
The hotel staff at the reception were friendly, and gave us directions and map for sightseeing. The restaurant offers good food, although it is priced slightly higher than expected. They have limited room service...only certain items can be ordered in rooms.
Overall, definitely value for money, and an excellent getaway.
