“Hasn’t Changed Over 20 Years” October 2014

Stayed again at the Post last month and have been doing so for the past 20 years. Rooms are superbly appointed and very comfortable. Food is excellent with very knowledgeable and attentive servers and reassuringly pricey - you get what you pay for and this is top drawer fayre. Well done Mario for being Maitre D - ask him to show you around the wine cellar after dinner, it really is worth a visit. Whether catering for 2 people or 200 people the approach is always the same - it has to be perfect and run like clockwork - this is where you see the vision, attention to detail and drive to perfection in owners George & Andre come alive for guests to experience. Hotels don't get much better than this.

“What a Gem!!!” October 2014

The whole experience in this hotel can only be called: EXCELLENCE. The hotel doesn't have the wonderful view of the lake but the little creek behind is very pleasant, the Post staff treat all customers like royalty....what an unforgetable stay!!!
