Stayed here several times on business trips always found this hotel to be warm and inviting and able to accommodate even the most demanding of travellers. Any request sort from the team of capable and highly efficient staff was answered immediately and carried out without delay. I've stayed in several of the rooms here all I believe with a different...

The food, as always, was great. Entrees of scallops and seafood chowder. mains of steak and salmon and desserts of crème brulee and orange cake. However the service let them down and tainted a special night out. Three times I said I would have a Shiraz with my main but only after my steak was delivered and I asked again... More

It really was the perfect meal, 6 of us all family ages 78 - 16yrs of age all enjoyed it. Friday night the service was impeccable, attentive but not intrusive. Menu options and questions answered. We had a mixture of entrees, my salmon tartare to die for. Battered Bluff Oysters yum, Pate and chowder all crowd pleasers. Mains were perfectly... More

I have to admit I went under sufferance thinking last time I went they had lost their way. Great news they are back on track and it sounds like they are going to get even better. The service was fantastic, a great blend of casual banter and formal guidance through the menu. The excellent wine list is supported by enthusiastic... More

This is a great place to get together with your friends after work for a few quiet drinks or enjoy some of the most amazing meals in the restaurant. I have eaten here 4 times now and can only say that the service was great and it doesn't matter what you order you won't be disappointed. Also a great selection... More

D'Urville's has always had an excellent reputation so we thought we'd give it a go. our anniversary dinner is all we buy each other on the day so we make it a good one and were very impressed.

We very much enjoyed our meal at the Hotel d'Urville. If a bit slow, the service was adequate and very pleasant. The bread starter was a nice touch and my beef ribeye and my wife's lamb were well prepared & tasty. It was good value, and we would dine there again.

Enjoyed our meal very much here. We had recommendation for a place that was much more expensive and wanted something more reasonable. This fit the bill nicely. Good food. Friendly service. Situated as part of a 1900 hotel. Reservations probably recommended.
