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:   The porter Henry was lovely. He was extremely friendly when getting our bags and showing us to our room. We enjoyed a delicious meal and dessert in the restaurant. The decor of our room was simple but very nice. It was also neat to see the tractor in the entrance way. The buffet in the morning was spot on. Thank you for all your hospitality and a wonderful stay!

Review:   An unexpected pleasure. Our flight was cancelled so the airline put us up for the night. Everyone was very professional, polite, helpful, and understanding of the circumstances. We were quickly checked in and shown to our room, with a nice overview of the facilities and history along the way. Although we didn't get to use many of the facilities (I was very disappointed to not have togs packed, the pool looked great), we did use the free guest wifi and make use of the bar. Again the staff were very friendly and chatty, the drink selection was very good, and the layout and seating comfy. The room was well laid out, modern, and very clean. The bathroom had a good sized shower and good quality soaps, shampoo and conditioner. The bed was a large king and very comfy too. We didn't eat breakfast as we were up early to get back to the airport via the courtesy shuttle, which conveniently runs on demand. Overall we really enjoyed our unexpected stay and both agreed we'd choose the venue next time we were in town.

Review:   While the room is nice and prepared well. The air was stale and needed airing out before. However the service from the staff was superb and even though they had a lot of different conferences going on they juggled that around with a smile. From the parking attendant to the receptionist and butler they were all very welcoming.

Review:   Staff were very welcoming and great interior of the hotel with lots of decor about the antarctic expeditions. However the specific room I was in had a very strong and pungent smell of some type of food perhaps left by the previous guest, but it was not a great experience. Overall everything else was standard or fine.
