I spent the second week of July here with my partner and another couple. We stayed in Airesmith rooms 4 and 5.
Accommodation: Rooms were great, plenty of room, lovely big terrace to sit outside, beds were massive and very comfy. Bathrooms are pretty outdated but did the job just fine. We had air-con but found we didn’t use it very much. It could use a TV though, I know you don’t go away to watch TV but late at night it would have been nice, also we were sick one day and just felt like watching some TV.
Food: Sorry to say the food was crap, we ate at the restaurant one night and found it to be pretty average and overpriced compared to restaurants in town. The breakfast however was nice, although it was the same everyday with not that many options.
Staff: This was the main problem with the hotel, we were constantly harassed by staff to go on tours (which were overpriced as well) and they were always like don’t tell the hotel though as they were doing it on the side. I know they are just trying to make a living but it became very annoying. The manager must have overheard one of them because nest thing we knew he was taking over. We did end up booking rafting through him (which turned out to be excellent) but after that he simply didn’t leave us alone wanting us to book more things.
Location: perfect the hotel is located on a slope going down the river. The hotel is laid out beautifully and a lot of work goes into the landscaping. It really is amazing. Just be warned that there are a lot of stairs this didn’t bother us at all but if you were in a wheelchair or had a disability it would be a problem. Its only a short walk into town, however there is a free shuttle bus but it didn’t seam to be reliable.
Spa: unreal never seen anything like it. The carvings are unlike anything I had ever seen before, we had a great afternoon jumping between to hot and cold pools. The main pool was also lovely and surprisingly deep which I love.
Overall we did have a great stay here it was just the staff that were annoying and the food wasn’t that great however there are tonnes of food options nearby so don’t let that put you off.
