A fantastic, well-managed hotel- one to definitely visit if in the area
I want to thank the staff at the McWilliam Hotel for being so professional, kind and courteous to my parents who had lunch there recently (Wednesday January 12th). From the moment they arrived, they were treated incredibly well- from the friendly staff.  The young woman who greeted them on arrival made a particularly great impression. The waitress who looked after them after this, was also excellent. Both should be commended for their excellent service. The food was also excellent- great quality, generous portions and good value.

They loved their visit and have already returned today (almost within the week). Again they had a lovely experience.
I can vouch for this establishment as I accompanied them there late last year and I was so impressed by everything- the highly trained, professional teams, the service, the food (you have to try the curry!) the cleanliness and the overall general feeling of excellent, caring management.
My parents were absolutely delighted and will return often. I will be there shortly for sure. Thank you all at the McWilliam- we really appreciate what you are doing there, and will spread the word.
