You have to drive down a narrow road downhill to get to the hotel, for those not used to driving in the hills, this can be a bit troublesome!
The hotel has multiple levels as it is built on a hill and for each level you need to take stairs or take a lift (the lifts are quite small)..,so it can be a challenge if you have old folks or children with you. We were allocated lower level rooms, we requested for a change since we had a child with us....we were promptly accommodated to the rooms on the main level.
Walk from the hotel to the mall road is abt a km but it is a very steep walk...they do have a shuttle service to take you to the nearest mall entry.
Now coming to the hotel, it is a brilliant little hotel tucked away in a corner, the rooms are good overlooking the valley...decent sized and absolutely nice and clean. We didn't venture out to the mall much so mostly had food at the hotel...food was surprisingly good and the kitchen took extra care of us by doing special requests for our 2 years old !!
The deck overlooking the valley is a bliss...it was my most fav part of the hotel.
The staff as you would expect from a Raddisson is immaculate, took really good care of us...inspire of them being fully booked due to a conference....they paid individual attention.
I would recommend the hotel...if you intention is to have a quite relaxed break...but if your intention is to explore the mall, then a closer option would be much more suited.
