The staff were very helpful, welcoming Emma and guiding her through the hotel...

the hotel is very nice and typical, the staff is friendly, the structure is very special. An unfortunate event had happened. But after the clarifications with Executive Assistant Manager, the problem was solved. Only professionalism, kindness and caparbiety's some people can bring harmony in relationships.

I have been here twice so far and both with colleagues. The first for drinks and the second for weekend breakfast/lunch. I found the service perfectly fine and the building and setting excellent. The gardens are nice and alive with birds and we were watching the whales offshore whilst eating. Food was fine and there was plenty of choice.
