Went for lunch with world traveling friends. The locations and surrounds are excellent but the dining is not. My first 2 choices for lunch were sold out so settled for the burger. Mediocre is the term I would used followed by even poorer quality coffee that I had to leave. Shame really as there are few places to choose from... More

You cannot imagine how I felt flying into Australia as a special guest speaker at an event here, only to be checked into a room with a bathroom that hadn't been serviced and dirty towels, soap and rubber gloves on the floor. This I can understand as a simple mistake. But after checking in on a Friday night at 9pm... More

WE are very disappointed to see this up here. WE had apologised for our mistake and that one of our younger members of staff may failed to mention if you leave the building how you can come back in - however noting this guest was checked in by her mother so not sure weather the information was passed on also...

This place has so much potential. The building is amazing, the setting and landscape incredible! The breakfast was great. Just a few things let it down...checking in was a weird experience. No one was arrived, it felt abandoned. Had to phone a mobile (number left on the desk) when I arrived and the person didn't say "Narrows Landing". Eventually I... More

Thanks for your feedback. We are a small family run B and B so if you are checking in late after 5pm you do have to call a number as we have a young family, most people love the windows in the room its part of our character. You fail to mention you were also upgraded for no extra charge. More

Went to cafe today for lunch today. Had the warm smoked salmon on potatoes cakes. Definitely one of the best cafe meals I have ever had. I will be back and I will be having that again. Also got a raw coffee slice to take away. It was also amazing. Staff very attentive, quick service.

Beautiful setting for a Restaurant--some soft music in the background would have helped to drown out the traffic noise...staff were extremely helpful and attentive, mind you we were the only diners in an area that seats 100 at a lunch time. Not a good look. Lunch/brunch menu was promising and tasty but small for the cost when presented. Coffees warm... More

We organised a large group of friends to travel to Hamilton and we needed a great overnight venue to accommodate and cater dinner for 17 people. The Narrows did a great job. The service was topnotch both during all the organisation and during the stay and the food was excellent. Unfortunately there was no Sky so we had to organise... More

The first room I was shown was dark and overlooked a roof. Two of the four lights were not working. No door on the wardrobe. I was upgraded to a larger, better and lighter room.

We stayed here for our wedding night. Our work surprised us with a room. We got into our room about midnight and 2 minutes later the neighbours were banging on the wall telling us to be quiet.

This accommodation has all the potential in the world... well in Hamilton at least. Beautiful surrounds with a 'lodge' like feel. Unfortunately due to poor service (an especially rude owner who insists on wearing dirty sneakers), lack of maintenance and outdated rooms it doesn't quite hit the mark, Kept awake till 4am with a noisy and drunken party in the...
