We stayed at the Harbour House Hotel - see my review the beginning of Sept which is a shoulder fall time. Breakie was also reported in that review. However I thought for our experience we would have dinner on the premises - we checked in only to find out the restaurant was closed. However we did attend in the morning... More

Restaurant has been closed for months. Few guests. Few staff still around. Not sure how much longer it can keep going.

Ate here on last visit and booked for a few nights stay. It has a great location but the accommodation was so bad we cancelled the rest of our visit and booked somewhere else to stay. Don't stay here and the restaurant is sketchy.

Beautiful setting, excellent service and plenty of home-grown vegetables and herbs - a really excellent place to eat, albeit a little pricey, but not as expensive as some others nearby! Well worth it!

They lost our reservation ("threw away the paper written on"), sat us at a dirty table while she cleaned it, waited very very long time for food, chicken was dry, tough. Manager asked how our mean was, expecting rave reviews I guess, apologized, said chef was at a funeral, short handed, offered coffee on the house as compensation for 3... More

We went there as a special occasion with my nephew from out of town. Expansive menu had been reduced to three appetizers and three entrees. No cocktails were available. The service was terrible as the two serving staff did not seem to have a clue, they either walked past or had to make multiple trips for the same item. Food... More

We arrived at our appointed reservation time, but the hostess had no record of our call. A table had just opened up, though, and we were instructed to sit at it WHILE THE WAIT STAFF CLEANED IT! We opted to stand instead of having food scraps brushed into our laps -- with a rag so dirty it left more debris... More

The changing of hands has lifted this lovely restaurant back to a being special. Most of the food comes from their own gardens, which are a treat to visit. The new chef's offerings are exciting, tasty, and a welcome surprise. The manager and team are refining ways in the hotel. We had a marvellous dinner with friends and will go... More
