Stayed here on a Saturday night last October. A good location, very quiet, beautiful public gardens across the street. Parking is at the side of hotel and you need to take your luggage quite a way. You can access the restaurant and foyer thought internally once you are inside the hotel. A nice pool setting if warm enough to swim.

Staff were friendly and helpful. We had a couple of drinks there on the terrace between showers but did not eat there as we arrived late and left... More

The hotel is located beside a park with just a few block walk to the center of town and the river. Its a quiet town so not that much to see and do but was a great home base for a day tour of the vines. The room was reasonably spacious with a good bathroom. Everything was clean, modern and... More

We had a 2 night stay over Christmas, the room was clean with modern decor, had WiFI, toiletries etc and it was also a good accessible room for me. The staff were helpful and friendly. The restaurant served lovely food and the Christmas dinner was great. More than happy to stay again.

I stayed at this hotel only one night and I would recommend it for a short stay. The food at the restaurants is really nice and the rooms are quite cozy. The staff is friendly. There is a sauna and their beauty products are exceptional.
