think it was a nice job done in converting an old police station into a hotel though I could not see why after all the additional staircase/ lifts and stuff, why couldn't they add a new access veranda at the back so that the front porch can be remained private, and you could have more proper window openings at the front without the concern of being disturbed by the wandering public....
the rooms have neat decorations but I have 2 suggestions for considerations:
1. there can be more hooks/ shelves inside the toilet
2. the a/c seemed to be a bit loud and it blew at your head.
excellent location for a hideaway, and has good access to some hiking trails nearby.
as for the restaurant, while some of the dishes using local produce were good, the kitchen just could not do a proper steak... why do you have steak on the menu in the first place? focus on local flavor might give you a winner. and the TV inside the restaurant was quite annoying and immediately destroyed the atmosphere and setting.
the staff were generally nice but were a bit rigid in seeing to the requests of their guests. I stayed there with my wife and daughter to celebrate my wife's birthday, while they have a birthday package including meal + accommodation and a birthday cake, they could not accommodate a personal message even if I offer to pay extra for it...? since the place is far away from the city, I could not possibly bring my own cake to the hotel. a little bit more consideration would help.
really want to see this hotel blossom to a true gem!
