When I first walked in on Easter Sunday I was told there are no tables and I would not get served anywhere. It was like walking into the bar in Star wars! Talk about 'we don't like your kind here'. The waitress was so rude to me. I sent my cousin in (a man) and she was fine to him...

My husband and I stayed in one of the new Park Studio rooms. It was perfectly adequate for the few nights we were there and very good value for what we got. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room had a nice little balcony which opened at tree level onto some gardens. It was lovely seeing the birds early...

The second time (we were a group of 8, perhaps noisy, related adults (youngest about 60). Service was excellent, food great especially the lamb and the "Chocolate Nirvana" sweet. in fact the...

While this Hotel may look old the accommodation and rooms are first class, while the bar area is noisy and full most of the time the dinning room and food selection and presentation is great. Of course the local shopping area is a ladies delight and you are welcomed and treated as if you were about to buy all on...

Lovely hotel in the center of the city. We had lunch on the balcony in front of the hotel, The menu was a little fancy but OK value. Greytown is not in the center of the vineyard region and we drove to Martin borough which took about 20 mins to drive. The hotel staff did offer to take us even...
