Experience to remember

Only stayed 1 night which ends up fairly expensive by the time you add park fees but well worthwhile. Rooms very small but nicely decorated. Had an absolutely wonderful dinner in the restaurant. They looked after our whims and fancies and we really enjoyed trying a bit of everything. We finished the night with a bottle of wine in the lounge by the open fire Would recommend to anyone who likes to do something a bit different

Good food with an amazing view.

Brooklyn, New York

While visiting Volcano National Park, we stopped to grab lunch. Volcano house had amazing food and the view was stellar. This restaurant is located inside a cute little inn. We had a nice meal there. They also have a nice little gift shop.
