Nice hotel in great position

We enjoyed our stay because of the proximity to the Canyon. Walk outside and you are on the South rim. Overall, the staff were not particularly friendly. The rooms are small, but comfortable with quality doonas on the bed and good bathroom amenities. The restaurant is highly rated on numerous review sites, however meals are not chef quality, lacking taste and gluggy - catering to size rather than fresh flavours. The bar has excellent views and is a nice place to sit on a cold afternoon.
