The hotel was a former colonial house and it has been renovated to a very high standard maintaining the historical features. It was a real privilege to stay in such an amazing building. Guests are allowed to join the regular tours free. The seating area in the courtyard with the pools is very peaceful at night. Rooms are very comfortable, spacious and very well appointed. Staff very helpful. Excellent restaurant- lunch is particularly good value.
Hotel took large deposit (for in-hotel expenses) off credit card which it was then a bit fiddly to get repaid. It would be helpful to be warned of this in advance so guests could have brought enough cash if they preferred to pay that way. Access to swimming pool for most guests is through a side exit which means going out of the front - cushions not always available on sun beds. Organised tours happened a few times a day - but see above.
I’ve been before, 9 years ago. This time I brought 5 more friends to experience the Blue Mansion. Usually we go to a hotel to be near the places we want to visit, but with the Blue Mansion, it is the place we have come to visit!
Location, historical context, peacefulness
Thought for sure house keeping could have been better! For 2 staff each evening to arrive at room with sweet bits and hand through door .... not enough! Top of coffee machine in room very dusty and I would for sure have expected a bedroom turn down in the evening
It was such a privilege to stay in such a beautiful house. The surroundings are fabulous!
The music from the food hall next door but ear plugs are provided.
Loved the ambiance, staff, food, pool and location.
Still catching up to other resorts but beautiful boutique hotel
