My wife and I had a 2 night stay at this hotel. The room was quite small and the bathroom particularly cramped. The restaurant was good and there are nice views over the cove. Unfortunately when we sat by the good sized pool we were disturbed by intermittent noise from building works going on.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at the Rockwater restaurant. Everything from the appys to dessert was spot on. Excellent service, beautiful scenery. A wonderful experience.

The food was delicious no doubt. I had the beef tenderloin and it was fantastic. The service was great and very attentive!

Solid menu with something for everyone. I have a high standard (I.M.O.) and don't like to pay for things I can make better at home, this was NOT THE CASE here. Very much enjoyed the offerings.

I was not a guest at the hotel but was there for a dinner party of 12. My dinner was good but some of the other guests were not happy particularly since the entrees are quite pricey. Our service was bad at best and when it came to the bill it was a nightmare. Also no portable debit machine .... More

I had an opportunity to experience Rockwaters' Waterfront restaurant recently and have to say the value and the food were both great. The chef did an amazing job, the flavours blended well and the company was truly fine!
