The location is fabulous if you... More

Had the opportunity to live at this property for the month of November 2014. The location is perfect for local traffic to stop in for a tea in the lobby, to park their cars for mass, local shopping or for an event at The Old Ground. This is a grand property for those who are staying one or two nights... More

Had lunch here and found the decor relaxing and seating comfortable with adequate space between tables. Varied menu and tasty, generous serves. Fast service for the quick duck in for those with a tight schedule.
