Positive Reviews

Find your inner peace.

The grounds of the property are filled with greenery to create a soothing ambiance. Even though the property has an on-site golf course, even non-golfers appreciate the serenity and natural beauty on display.

Here comes the bride.

The hotel has a good reputation for hosting weddings and other large gatherings like birthday parties. Guests say the hotel’s large function room and on-site facilities make it great for hosting events. The ability to host an event and stay in one place m

Stay and play, literally.

With so many sporting facilities available, the hotel is a great place to stay and play – your favourite sport that is. There are two golf courses, 18-holes and 9-holes, plus tennis courts, a gym and a pool. You can relax and stay fit at the same time.

Negative Reviews

Rowdy events keep non-participants awake.

While the hotel has developed a good reputation for hosting events, these shindigs can be loud and disturbing to the other guests at the property. Guests note the noise can be bothersome at night when they are trying to sleep.

The long, cold walk.

The accommodations are housed in a separate building from the reception desk and restaurant. Visitors note they have to go outside when trying to get from one building to the other which can be unpleasant in the winter.

Food for thought.

Visitors point out the food at the hotel is not particularly good and options are limited. The hotel does serve breakfast, but it is not included. Overall, guests say the hotel’s dining experience leaves a lot to be desired.
