From Widsten the resident greeting dog to the team who checked me in and the room service/hospitality team were all next level. They were fun and happy and did everything they could to make my stay extra special! So grateful i got to celebrate my most recent business promotion to chairman here. Truly special location and people! The bartender was above and beyond as well! For a drink, a spa treatment or a night away it truly is special!

The kids were so excited to stay in our local iconic Empress Hotel, it was a beautiful escape during this challenging Covid time. The pool facilities are lovely, and the views from the room and dining patio were picturesque!
