I stayed at the Heritage Park Hotel between the 5th and 11th August 2013. Everything must be taken in context, for it's endeavour to be an international 4 star property they try hard. Located overlooking the sea, it's gardens are well maintained with plenty of plant life. At the western end of the sea front there's a wharf area and bar (not part of the Heritage) and the music can be a little loud but sufierable. The property is in good order and is currently undergoing some expansion - adding extra rooms near the open cafe area. Rooms are comfortable good size, air-conditioning works well and furniture is in good order. Bathroom is adequate for a seasoned traveller with shower, basin and toilet, all were again in good order and clean. Bathroom extras were to be expected in such a property and were replenished as required. Minibar well stocked and fridge worked well without being noisy. Tea & coffee making supplied, but no biscuts supplied although there were chips-peanuts in the bar for purchase. Breakfast is taken in the open cafe area adjacent the very large lobby area. One thing you can never be in the Islands is in a hurry, the word isn't part of the culture. Serving staff friendly and unobtrusive, meaning you must always tell them you want to sign your account and go, never the other way around. Choice of Continental breakfast - cereal choice, fruit, choice of fruit drink + toast and some form of spread of the day be it jam, peanut butter etc. But no tea or coffee is included this is an extra charge and has to be ordered separately. In all, adequate. If you want a hearty breakfast there's a quite good selection to order from - the English style plate is a very full platter and well costed. For dinner the in-house restaurant is adjacent the cafe outdoor area and is fitted out extremely well, menu extensive and food presentation very acceptable. Good selection of wines and beers various. If you have any special requests for the front office staff make sure they well understand and be prepared to follow up the request in time and wait to see it it transpires. Again it's the culture of the Islands just don't be in a rush as no one else is, so sit back and it'll happen in Island time, no problems. Happy hour, pool side 16:00-18:00 is a popular daily event and a great opportunity to strike up a conversation with anyone from a fellow in-house traveller to even one of the Diplomatic staff posted to the country. I believe it's a well presented property, it's General Manager keeps his eye on what's happening, and he's to be seen all over the property from early morning to late night. As a war time General once said - "I will return" I enjoyed my stay - Dennis J Weatherall Sydney Australia
