Hemingways Hotel has been our "home away from home" for years. We've been there through thick and thin, in sickness and in health, for better or worse, and nearly till death did we part. We've been through multiple changes of staff and the past renovation that had the place in a tip. We keep going back and recently staged our reunion (husband and wife) when Janet returned from a five and a half month visit to the USA. Now Hemingways has a "buzz" to go with a lovely facility. The new MD (Madeleine) is visible, personable, and hands on. James has added new Food & Beverage events and options which make the hotel life more attractive. Opening "Felix" bar in an unused but special corner is a great addition. Some of the "old" family are still there with Vusumzi tending to personal needs beyond the call of duty. Of course at the top of old family is Assistant MD (Liz) whose blessings cannot be measured. I'm sure as soon as Tripadvisor's time limit allows I'll have another glowing review of Hemingways! We'll certainly be back. Thank you Hemingways family...we love the buzz!!!
