Share house no air con
The view was amazing but we found when we arrived that this accommodation had a shared living and kitchen.Which was a surprise.The room was tiny and had very poor ventilation and only a pedestal fan in 25 degrees night time temperature no air con.disappointing and uncomfortable.

We booked the Majestic Room with a King Sized bed that had its own patio. Wasn't sure what to expect but I really liked it and I'd say it was the best room available. It's a simplish room but bed was good and it was nice to have that little private outside area with a view over Atherton. Other guests also have access to a patio but they may be sharing it with others. We didn't have time to try the jacuzzi this time.

Amazing views
The property was lovely, the views spectacular, the heated spa pool perfection. My only criticism is that the owners were there disturbing our stay. 3x they came and went the first morning and then arrived with cleaners 15 minutes before check out (which is a miserable 9:30 timeslot to begin with) and rudely rushed all the guests out. Considering the price of the rooms, i consider this unsatisfactory behaviour. Wouldn't rush to recommend it to others for that alone.

Bed too small as the room couldn't accommodate a bigger bed. Would have been nice to have bedside lamps
