After being seated we waited over 20 minutes for someone to come over and ask if we had been served. The restaurant had fewer than 10 people in it at the time and 3 out of the 4 serving staff were busy putting away equipment...More

Great accommodation and location but Overnight parking is going to cost you an extra $45 - add this in when planning to pick up or drop someone off. Beds are super comfortable, rooms are sparkling with lovely amenities. Breakfast is a $32 buffet. High end...More
