We stayed for 4 nights and had a really good time.
The room was lovely with a comfortable bed and good shower. (The only negative was the curtains, which let a lot of light in - not really a problem when we stayed in October but would be in the summer).
Excellent breakfasts -with really good tea!
Plenty of interesting conversation with our hosts and other guests, both over breakfast and over a cup of tea/coffee and a biscuit on an evening.
There's a decent restaurant and a good bar and pizza takeaway only 50 yards away in the adjacent motel. (The next nearest eating places are a long drive away).
Expensive, but then everywhere in the Yosemite area is. Draconian cancellation policies - but then they're all clearly stated on the website ;-)
