Ms. Susan Keates

"Relaxing time with lovely spacious rooms. Staff really friendly."

Mrs. Juliet Hanwell
"Beautiful surroundings attracting birdlife including Humming birds"
Mr. David Saunders
"Very comfortable and the springs and the view of the volcano were lovely. A bit impersonal and American for my tastes but for a two day stay not a problem "
Mrs. Susan Breslin
"A high standard hotel with hot springs. It wasn’t authentic enough for us as the accommodation was too American and could have been anywhere in the world "
Mr. Andrew Fellows
"Lovely gardens and pools, good food, great views of volcano."
