Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   1. Each time any reservation or confirmation was requested a written response was placed in my room; very much appreciated. 2. By design I never took breakfast at the hotel. 3. Among the nicest pools I've seen at any hotel. 4. My suite looked a bit worn and could stand some freshening. 5. Staff very helpful with directions, etc.

Review:   Wow, what a surprise. While I was aware of the hotel and its fantastic location, what I wasn't aware of was the quality of the staff. Concierge Graeme is top notch as were all of the team in North Bar and Restaurant! Very well trained and personable. Our room was clean and well maintained. We will be back!
