Wonderful stay. Lovely and modern, spacious and comfortable room. Magpies came to sing to us in the morning. Food at Rick Stein’s restaurant was delicious, simply prepared and flavourful. I had the pipis, my fave, they were plump and garlicky. Will definitely return.

10/10 Exceptional

Bannisters is style, the conversation on the way to our room said it all, friendly and informative. The room even at entry level was exceptional and big - that ticks boxes when you travel with suitcases - The staff at the front desk just want to please - we ate at Rick Steins and the food was just stunning - and there was a bonus moment to savour - Rick Stein was sitting two tables away - not bad for a big night out. Pete and Annie - Sorrento Vic.

Noise
Could not get to sleep as TV in next room mounted above bed in my room - walls wafer thin. Noise from car park terrible - in part due to wafer thin walls but also positioning of room.
