The hotel must have been stunning 25 years ago.

We loved the pool, the meals there were excellent, however the hotel has become run down particularly the rooms.
The grounds are immaculate. We did not have a kettle in our room or any cups to have tea or coffee. Our television did not work at all so we couldn't keep up with the news of the world. Our sheets instead of being white were gray in colour, with cigarette burns and frayed. When we enquired at the cost of the hotel per night we were advised that it was $US65, fortunately we had only paid $AU35 per night. Several families came to the hotel and looked around for another hotel and moved out. This was sad for us as we like to get to know people from all over the world. The staff were extremely nice and this seemed to make up for the other problems. While we were there over eight days, at then end of the holiday there were only four rooms being used. I would like to suggest to the owners that they repaint the rooms, get some new linen, upgrade the fridges and televisions and purchase some small electric kettles with cups for the guests convenience. We went to a local store and purchased a plastic electric kettle for 30,000 Rupea and then gave it to one of the staff when we were leaving. This hotel could be a paradise if the changes were made.
