Lemon Hill has seen a bit of a make-over since we were last here and perhaps with the domestic market in mind has added some air-con units, fixed up some of their better chalets, slapped a coat of (yes, lemon coloured) paint on and upped the price a bit.
They do have a fantastic decking area overlooking the river but Lemon Hill’s best point is its convenient location directly opposite the bus stop. The air-con chalets are certainly nice though not cheap (and for most of the year you don’t need air-con in Soppong anyway), but the fan rooms are more functional than anything else and every time we’ve visited service has been, to put it politely, a bit slack. The restaurant is best considered self-service; otherwise you're going to wait a long time for a drink.
Lemon Hill also has a coffee shop and WiFi. It's not a bad back-up if all else is full or you’re feeling too lazy to walk further.
