We love this hotel! We’ve been coming here for eleven years because they take great care of us. Please speak to our Hotel Liaison, Judith Hayman, if you have any problems while you’re at the hotel – we’ll do our best to keep you happy!

Please note before your book:

What we pay for the function space (around $4000) is dependant on the number of hotel nights our members use. Please book within our room block.
