One doesn''t go to The Ark for its accomodations or food. One goes to The Ark to see the animals, though this has decreased in recent years I am told. The Ark is built so that the guest can see the animals from viewing areas on each floor, the ground floor being partly open and very up front and personal. Since the property is built by a stream, and lights are on all night viewing of both walking and flying animals occurs. Guests who want to sleep until their favorite animals appear are woken up by bells which sound in their rooms when/if the animals appear. Note the lights attract moths so be prepared, the skys are filled with them around the hotel. Sort of the moth version of the film "The Birds".
