The heritage is a nice 3-4 star hotel, the Garden Room we booked was very clean and nicely set away from the main hotel. The view was pretty stunning looking up towards the snow capped mountains. We only stayed one night but found the service excellent including the standard of the restaurant. What really let down our stay was the poor sound proofing between the rooms - the Garden Rooms have a shared doorway which I think goes a long way to letting in A LOT of sound from the neighbouring guests. I found it extremely annoying, luckily my wife fell asleep early but I could not find any sleep until the people next door stopped their casual conversations (and other activities!) and various phone calls to family/friends in Australia (yes I could hear that much detail) for the night, at approx 1am.
What a shame, it really is a lovely hotel for the money but I would honestly recommend not staying in a Garden Room (can't speak for the other rooms).
