I have to give special recognition to Nozi who is a front of house manager whom goes out of her way to always please - even with the strangest of requests - with nothing but a smile! Read less

There’s a buzz about this restaurant/hotel and realised this when two friends who don’t know each other, suggested it for lunch. I thoroughly enjoyed the food, decided on the starter portions of risotto and the prawn-the sauce was so amazing that I was certain it had gluten and sulphites that I am allergic to...but nothing, completely safe!!… Read more

I stayed at the Vineyard for one week on business. Unfortunately, a pair of earrings were stolen from my room during my stay. I informed the hotel staff. While they stated they would recover my earrings and that they took the matter seriously, they repeatedly stated that my earrings were "lost" rather than stolen. Their reasoning was that the one member of their housekeeping staff who entered my room did not report seeing the earrings. To my knowledge, they took no corrective actions. Unfortunately, this had a very negative impact on my stay at the hotel. If you are travelling to this hotel, I would beware of the security of your valued possessions. While there is a safe in the room, it is not large enough to fit everything. Read less

I enjoyed my short stay. I have occasionally come to the Vineyard hotel as a student for lunch and to admire their lawn and tortoise(s). Returning as hotel guest was the cherry on top. The rooms are spacious. Comfortable bed. Had packed breakfast for my first day, an absolute winner! So much variety. Would definitely visit again with my family.

We stayed for 9 days in a courtyard room. Having booked the hotel specifically for the pool we were extremely disappointed it wasn’t heated. Whilst I appreciate it is Autumn for travelers from the Northern hemisphere 18-23o is summer weather and a warmed pool would be appreciated. Also there is little to no service at the pool and on every occasion we had to get dressed and seek assistance outside of the pool area - on one occasion (after getting dressed to go to the restaurant to summon help) the lady who came to take our order was rude and dismissive- rolled her eyes, was angry when she bought the wrong order and stated ‘well I’ll have to pay for that myself now’ - after that we no longer sat at the pool and had our afternoon cocktails elsewhere outside of the hotel. They are really missing a trick by not heating the pool nor having a regular check for service there. The rest of our stay was fabulous, staff friendly and helpful, breakfast fabulous and the views incredible. Read less
