We were privileged to be invited to Ori and Rosettas leaving party, and what a great time we had. The dining hall looked wonderful, I especially loved the twirling bouquets hanging from the ceiling and the roses in test tubes were novel as well. There was a veritable banquet laid out in the adjoining room, mention must be made of the butterfly prawns and stuffed squid starters. Wine and conversation flowed and speeches were made that showed me, for one, how dedicated to the Arminel, and its customers, the out going, lovely couple were. They will be a hard act to follow but, Ori assures me, the curries will not be dumbed down but remain just as spicy and meaty as of old. We always stayed at the Arminel when we were newbies to the area and now, living on the Mountain, it is our go to place for any celebration, especially Christmas, when us foodies know there will be something for all to enjoy and savour. Thank you staff and management for a great hotel. Live long and prosper.

We were only there for one night and stayed in one of the new chalets. They have redone them really well and we found them to be very well equipped from the kitchen to the bedrooms - a nice surprise! I would stay here again.

Whilst the rooms of the main hotel look a bit tired, the self catering cottage was very neat and well furnished. It was also very reasonable. Unfortunately there was no Wi-Fi in the cottage and the coffee supplied was Ricoffy

We enjoyed our one night stay. Cottage was comfortable and clean. Food was good. The staff are friendly and helpful.

A special mention to the receptionist, Mavis Stofile. She is an asset to the hotel. Nothing was too much trouble for her...answering all our questions, seeing that we were happy with our cottage.

My compliments to the management and staff. You can be proud of the excellent job you are doing and your lovely hotel.

After the boiled insipid steak that we'd had at the Edge restaurant, the Arminel was food heaven. The receptionist was incredibly helpful and knew the area well enough so that we didn't have to backtrack on our arrival route when we left the Hogsback, but instead took a fantastic and scenic shortcut. The meal was more than enjoyable - entrees were lentil soup with croutons, fish in a cheese sauce followed by roast chicken, roast potatoes, carrots, rice and spinach. There was also a self service salad bar where everything was separate - a great idea, as well as melba toast and bread rolls. Dessert was cheese cake. We would not find fault with anything in this hotel. If you want a comfortable stay with good food, lovely gardens, swimming pool for kids, it has it all. The service in the dining room was wide awake and attentive, not something we'd enjoyed at the Edge restaurant!

Room tip: Can't say, only had dinner here
