Beth and Allan

"In a great location in Ollantaytambo and a perfect place to chill out after the long flight. The room was huge and the gardens were beautiful, we spent hours watching the humming birds. The breakfast was the only disappointment."

Ms Lin Chandler
"Beautiful grounds surrounded by mountains with Llamas outside the windows. Breakfast and staff were brilliant. "
Dr Janos Demeter
"Nice environment."
Jo and Mike Bassett
"Consisted of a number of red buildings in the most colourful gardens with snow-capped mountain views and about five alpacas in an enclosure. The hotel is situated on the edge of the attractive town of Ollantaytambo, so close to the railway station but a good ten minute uphill walk at the side of a gushing river into the town. Our room was spacious, clean and rustically furnished. The restaurant was large but empty, most guests preferring to eat in the cheaper little restaurants in town. "
Mr Graham Kidd
"Excellent location, nice breakfast and good rooms"
