We agree with other reviewers comments about the long drive to this hotel. It certainly is a long, windy and bumpy road. However once you arrive, it's very interesting to see how the hotel has been converted from a tea factory. There's not actually a lot to do here and it's probably not somewhere you'd want to stay for more than 1 night. We had a stroll around the grounds before dinner to look at the tea plants etc and you could, if you wanted, pick some tea (at a cost).
Dinner and breakfast were fine with good choice. It seems to be standard to show guests the train carriage but the meal is not cheap and 7 courses would be just too much for us.
Our room was at the end of a corridor at the back of the hotel. We had our worst night's sleep here for the entire trip. Throughout the night there were dogs barking and also there seems to be something going on all night in a small factory area at the back of the hotel - we could hear people talking outside it.More
