I can't praise this hotel enough! From the moment we arrived at the E&O to the moment we left was the best short stay my partner and I have had for a long time.
Staff are so eager to please and can't do enough to make your stay a pleasant one.
Our room was at the Heritage side of the hotel and would say its the nicest side. Our room was very spacious and immaculate!
The bed was the most comfortable I've stayed in and there was everything you needed inside your room to make it very comfortable.
The grounds around the hotel were very neat and tidy and pool staff couldn't do enough for you.
Serving cold water and fresh cold towels to keep you fresh while sunbathing. Thought that was a great touch.
We ate in the 1885 restaurant and the standard was very high.
Food was amazing and service was second to none.
Well worth a visit if you are celebrating something special, or just want to splash out on fine dining.
I can't find anything negative to say about this hotel.
I can't wait to come back.
