We stayed for two nights for a convention and dined as a part of the proceedings on both nights. The young staff were excellent and led by a very accomplished banqueting manager who was as good as I have seen for some time. He ironed out any situations before they became a problem and you always get situations with big... More

Hi Denis Thank you for taking the time to provide us with some excellent feedback following your recent visit to the hotel for the Lions Club District Convention.

Suffered a cold night as heating was timed. Although management said it was "causing trouble". Staff, cleanliness, food excellent. Qestion: what constitutes an executive room? First it was a family room. Moved to room 51, no view, slept in dressing gown next night. Brrrr

Loved everything about the hotel!, all the staff we met were friendly and helpful, the room was large and clean(room 87, family room). Breakfast was great, as was the meal we had in the restaurant. We only got chance to use the swimming pool once and had it to ourselves. Really looking forward to going again.
