Not only was moss virtuous in his loveliness, he made a complete stranger feel like this place was a home away from home.”

“The staff who I would call friends are more than welcoming, professional & more than that make you feel at home…”


“The Harbour Rocks Hotel is indeed the most luxurious, brilliant hotel one could wish for. One of its most redeeming features is Moss, the Night Manager. This man truly saved me. I arrived tired, destitute and broken but much earlier than expected. Moss ran to the rescue, scooped us up and managed to give us a room ahead of schedule. I am forever grateful for this. Thank you so much Moss!”
