First Royal Portfolio Experience

Review of La Residence
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 03 Jun 2024via mobile
Property has great views of the mountains, big open spaces, classic decoration, jacarandas gifted by Elton John, some peacocks walking around, and service is impeccable, Hoon, Ayrton and Craig were great and it was my first Royal Portfolio experience. Main pool has beautiful views

Fay and the team were amazing hosts. They went out of their way on every occasion to make our anniversary a special and memorable experience. Mario was an amazing waiter, gave us a personal cellar tour, recommended the most amazing food and drink and memories to last a lifetime.

Amazing experience, amazing staff from receptionist to Housekeeping, I can not wait to go back, absolutely memorable for a solo-cation. They go over and above for their guests. I'd recommend it over and over again. Beautiful scenery and landscapes.

We were greeted with surprise at the hotel entrance because of an internal confusion over the booking however as soon as this was resolved the rest of our lunch experience at La Residence was quite magnificent. The service and attention from the staff was outstanding nothing was too much trouble. The food and wine were quite superb served by a grand log fire on a relatively chilly afternoon. Lunch was rounded off with coffee on the terrace with incredible views over the gardens and to the mountains. A truly unforgettable experience. Thank you!

Stayed four nights in a spledidly over the top room, with massive space, crazy decor and lovely outlook to the fish pool. Standards at the hotel are very high and managers and hotel staff cheery and efficient. The grounds and pool are lovely, recovering from a flood last autumn, and the hotel is close to the many restaurants in the town. A nice feel to the place.
The "But" relates to the restaurant, which on current form lets the hotel down. A rather short menu (the option to extend this did not add a lot) and slow service at breakfast and dinner. On one evening it took them 90 minutes to produce even a bottle of wine. It seems there is a lack of management supervision in the evenings.
