Reviewed 22 October 2016

We came for a social function/dinner. The whole vibe of the hotel was welcoming; the staff were most friendly and helpful and the gardens beautiful. It is centrally placed, enabling one to have easy access to most of the attractions of the town. The historic character of the hotel and its furnishings and decorations added to its charm.

Simple and comfortable hotel, no frills no fuss! if you looking for value for money then this hotel will suffice. The hotel caters for large tourist groups and the dinning room is geared up for ala carte and buffet. The outside area is tranquil and offers a lovely shady area for afternoon teas. The breakfasts are a bit bland.

From the time you enter through the gate of the hotel you step into a bygone era. The gardens are beautiful and the whole set up of the hotel creates a serene and inviting atmosphere. Centrally located with friendly staff.

If you don't take the time to walk through the beautiful garden and the bar area, you will miss out. This is a big property but incredibly well-maintained by the staff. In-room luxiries are limited, but if you spend too much time in your room in this hotel, "you're doing it wrong." Excellent little restaurant, too.
