This hotel was wonderful! The staff was excellent and went above and beyond. Tanya at the front desk was particularly helpful to us and we loved her! Also the young gentleman at concierge made our sightseeing extra special. Our room was spacious, the grounds lovely, and the food delicious. Also the location can't be beat - it's right in town just a block from restaurants and shops. Would highly recommend and would definitely stay again.

Just after a fantastic family wedding weekend in the Great Southern, the setup was stunning and the meal was delicious, compliments to the chiefs! The swift service and professionalism from each staff member was first-class, have to give a special mention to Caitlin, Jorge, Liam and Stephen who went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect!

The hotel was great mostly because of the exceptional service. Every staff member that I encountered was friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and accommodating- from the front desk to the restaurants to the spa. In particular Evelyn at the front desk, Martina in the coffee lounge, Christina at the spa were wonderful.
