Visitor impressions 

"Just a note to compliment your staff and the facility for an excellent stay. The views are really epic and my private room was comfortable and had everything I needed. The staff were also friendly and everything was spotless. The lounge is also an amazing space and the deck with BBQ is a great amenity." - Peter N
