Dirty linen, no hot water in the room, exorbitant price. Bad experience...

If you have no expectations from hotel staff and only looking for scenic beauty around, it is fine.

Loved the ambience, serenity and the stud farm nearby. Rooms were okay and it's not a luxurious but comfortable stay. Breakfast offered was average and did not have much options for vegetarians, but whatever was available had amazing taste. Overall a decent place.
