4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The room design was nice. Wood shutters with remote control. Nice large flat screen. Large bathtub, so large my wife complained that she couldn't lay properly. The bed was very comfortable. Flaws. Pool was closed. Not vegetarian or vegan friendly. And when we tried ordering food from outside, the staff gave us trouble getting it to our room. They would not allow delivery drivers to our room or even bring it up for us. We had to wait outside in the cold to receive any deliveries. I feel this is ridiculous for a 5 star property. For this reason we will not return to the Shilla in the future.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Great amenities and customer service. Breakfast buffet was also good. The only downside was that parking is like .5 km at the bottom of the hill so you have to take a shuttle to go to the hotel. Other than that, was one of the best hotels that Ive stayed.
