5/5 Excellent

This property is right on the river, which gives it such a pleasant feel. The room and entire property were super clean. Check in process was seamless and the receptionist was very welcoming and gave us a tour of the property and walked us to our room. He also recommended a few local waterfalls to see and they were beautiful! There are many amenities such as, a sauna, a small outdoor hot tub, a bar and restaurant and a nice lobby. It is very close to the town of Hella, with food and a gas station. I would highly recommend staying at this property.
