Because Gyeongju is a smaller city, we did not expect luxury accommodations and we were pleasantly surprised by the hotel which is quite large and offers a wide range is services and restaurants. It is located right on the lake and we had a room with a lake view during cherry blossom season so it was quite spectacular. The service was excellent but be fore warned that nothing in this hotel is inexpensive. There are multiple restaurants and the food is adequate but pricey. We ate at the Mediterranean restaurant and my fish was not fresh and my husbands meal was barely edible. We shared an appetizer, each had A main course and one alcoholic drink and our bill was the equivalent of $150 US. We would not have minded the cost if the food was good. The next night we ate at the Chinese restaurant and it was equally poor. The breakfast was good but I would recommend eating outside of the hotel for dinner.
The grounds of the hotel were lovely and a nice place to stroll during the day or evening.
This is probably the most luxurious hotel in the area.
