Reviews from previous The Turbine Boutique Hotel and Spa guests
“What a great spoil this establishment is. Not the cheapest place in town, but they do make it worth the spend with the service and accommodation. From arrival to departure you feel special. Great stay, and the history as depicted in the property itself makes it even better,” wrote Johan on their TripAdvisor page.
