      This property is a great place to relax and enjoy the comforts of the hot springs and amenities. The staff are absolutely fabulous. If I have one concern it is that the bed covers are quite heavy which is my personal issue when I sleep.

      A definate splurge but worth every penny! This hotel was amazing - free valet parking, free delicious breakfast with so much variety, free use of the beautiful springs (even on check out day). Every staff member we encountered was knowledgable, friendly and went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect. Highly recommend!

      Property was beautiful and well maintained. I loved the hot springs! Service was wonderful and you made our wedding incredibly special. Thank you for decorating our room on our wedding night. The wine and chocolate covered strawberries were amazing! Truly a great experience; I’ll be returning one day.

      Although the food is pretty good, the cost of it is ridiculously high! I was warned by another traveler that it was expensive,but I feel they jack up the food prices because they know the town is a $20 cab ride away and they are the only option. The breakfast that comes complimentary was good.
