A once in a lifetime chance to stay at the Fairmont Springs as I was attending a conference. The exterior, lobby, shops, bars, banquet hall and restaurants are fantastic and opulent. Great service (full of friendly kiwis and Ozzy's having a great OE) with breathtaking views. The rooms on the third floor where we stayed were nice but at the end of the day were just another hotel room. If you ever get the chance to stay grab it but not sure if I would want to pay the eye-watering full rates.
I have it on good authority that the gold level was well worth the extra money.
