      Nice hotel, not friendly customer service staff

      27 Aug 2020: Staff tend to look down on foreigners, and help out their own. Two hours before 3 pm (check-in time), I was told that I could not check in early, and so I waited. While waiting, I saw four different customers (locals) speak to the hotel front desk staff, and were able to check-in right away. I left a note in my hotel room writing all my frustrations, not with the hotel, but to the staffs. Hotel-- Good, Hotel Staff-- Not Good

      The proximity to the park was a bonus. The hotel staff was welcoming and helpful. Not being able to buy even a cup of coffee, let alone a meal in the hotel was very disappointing. Amenities notwithstanding, the stay was comfortable.

    • 6.0.Good

      Room was nice, I didn't have a mountain view but still beautiful. Staff were relatively good, a few language barriers (i waited for a wine for 30 minutes as she hadn't realised I ordered one) breakfast buffet was tasty, predominantly Asian with some western breakfast items. Dinner was not suitable for me, they had a two person meal and my only options were pizza or chicken and chips or fish and chips or salad. I think my chicken and chips with a beer cost me AUD$50! I bought ramen from the7-11 next night. I stayed here to go to Seoraksan, if it weren't for the great location I probably would've stayed elsewhere.

      Walking distance to Mt Seorak entrance/cable car. Good for those who wanted to explore Seorak. Bus stop to SokCho town in just in front of the hotel

      The room is big and clean. However, the Mountain View is very limited. It was blocked by a wall on one side and couldn’t get a panoramic view.

      Great location

      Great location, didn’t need to get stuck in traffic for an hour to get to the entry of Seoraksan like any other cars.

      Probably past it’s prime, but still has plenty of character and charm. Great location and views. Pricey eating options.

    • 10.0.Exceptional

      Amazing view!! Breakfast is also good! Room could be a bit modernized and bright, but I think is to reflect “ British style”, and this could depend on personal taste. Overall, the hotel is decorated with a great ambiance and a lot of interesting materials. But of course, the distance to the Mountain and the view is just the best of all!!
