We have amazing guests and we are always happy when they have a great stay with us. We are even happier when then tell us that they have had a good time, like these lovely people:

My hubby and I stayed here on a recent weekend getaway. From the moment we checked in we felt welcomed. Our host was friendly and accommodating. We dined at the on-site restaurant, our waitress was friendly, the meal was faultless. We mixed with locals who were all friendly. The spa was a delight. The bed was very comfortable. THANK you and we will definitely recommend your hotel.

First time staying at parklands. Must say I absolutely loved and enjoyed the stay. Staff were welcoming and friendly, the room was clean and nice, the bed was comfortable. As for the food I am a city and guilds London qualified chef and I give the scotch fillet 10/10 complements to the chef. Definitely will be returning until next time thanks you for your hospitality.
Yours sincerely, Joshua Wickens aka. That Car distribution group employee
