Positive Reviews

Outstanding staff.

Most guests give the front desk team rave reviews for their personable and professional customer service, commenting often on their smiling faces and their willingness to answer questions, recommend restaurants, and resolve issues cheerfully and efficiently. Guests often remark that the team just "can't do enough" for them.

Comfortable rooms with a view.

Most guests find the rooms to be sparkling clean, with comfortable beds and ample space. Guests in the Family Suite particularly appreciate the storage space, as well as the separate bathtub and shower. Many guests enjoy the lovely river views available from their rooms, as well as from the swimming pool area.

Compliments to the chef...

The Super Breakfast Buffet generally lives up to its name, with most guests praising the impressive variety of hot and cold options. The wait staff also receive high marks for their friendly, attentive service. Kids of all ages love the pancake machine. Most guests have high praise for the food at both Elements Bistro and the Quayside Bar & Lounge, and they are also quick to note the lovely atmosphere both offer out on the terrace.

Negative Reviews

Rooms ready for refurbishment.

Several guests note that though the rooms are well maintained, the overall impression is that the decor and finishes are "tired", "dated", or "worn".

Time to raise the bar...

While the majority of guests enjoy the bar menu and drinks, several guests were less enthusiastic about the bar staff, noting slow, indifferent service. While most of the other staff receive positive reviews, a few guests have noted that there may be too few of them, particularly in the fitness area and restaurants during peak times.

The fatscreen televisions...

Some of the rooms still feature the large, old-fashioned televisions, much to most guests' dismay.
