“Beautiful place to stay, rooms were very clean, bathroom is very modern, loved it and felt secure ontop of the hill with CCTV cameras and well lit carpark area. Exceptional customer service who are willing to bend over backwards to make sure you feel comfortable, welcome and well informed during check out. The early morning walk up the stairs from the carpark to the lookout to watch the sunrise was well worth it!”
