Everything was wonderful, from the spa experience to the accommodation, the service, the food, and the attention to detail. Definitely high up on our list for another visit. Thank you to Mount Grace for making our 25th wedding anniversary such a special occasion.

We called to confirm a lunch date for our anniversary, they said there was a buffet and gluten free options. There was no buffet but only a bar type menu. The service was very slow and the staff were poorly trained. I came to this hotel many years ago and the food was excellent, what a disappointment. To cap in all they brought me coffee with stale milk.

We have been to Mount Grace Hotel a few times in the past. It has always been a wonderful experience and 5star. Unfortunately the standards have dropped significantly though. • I had requested water for our room but did not receive any. • We had to ask the waitress to clean our table she showed us to, she then appeared to totally forget us and when our food was eventually plonked on the table she didn’t check if we had the sambals, or eating utensils. • At the end of the meal we signalled for an hour to various staff asking for the bill. We finally had the invoice dropped on our table and we signed it while the staff disappeared again. • Once tucked into our bed and with a Do Not Disturb sign on the door, we heard a very loud frantic knocking at 11pm .. only to be greeted by the same lady now wanting us to immediately pay via the credit card machine! That gave us a fright. • To add to our bad night the Aircon which is directly above the bed started dripping and then pouring water all over our heads and pillows!!

What an amazing stay! My husband and I spent one night at Mount Grace. The staff is so friendly, competent, helpful, and fun to chat to. The room looked like the picture and has everything you need. There are beautiful views from the room and dining areas. We enjoyed the food at dinner and breakfast. We also had great cocktails at the bar. The spa is amazing and we loved our full body massages. Would definitely recommend! The only slightly negative thing I can say is that there are some small maintenance issues (like a sticky window and missing door bolt), but nothing major. We will be back soon!

After looking forward to visiting this place, I was so crushed. Room seemed so old and outdated, there were spider webs, bedding was dirty, a very old TV which didn't work, but wasn't surprised with that. In-room dining, wasn't happy with the platter the food was so cold, next day tried my luck with the fish, also wasn't too happy with that, and seems like the cold food is a thing. As someone who travels extensively, I must say was looking forward to our stay but left so disappointed. Up side to our stay was the friendly staff, that was a lovely experience.

Food and Beverage manager should lose his job and general manager just as clueless. Restaurants and food is a disaster. The poor front of house staff hang their heads in shame at the horrible food out of stocks. Nothing is fresh, it’s all oily and recycled frozen mess.
