Amenities at Eastwood Richmonde Hotel

Whenever I stay at a hotel, I love checking out its amenities. I usually love using the swimming pool, jacuzzi and steam/sauna because they’re less accessible to use than a gym.

At Eastwood Richmonde Hotel, there’s a fitness center that has a rooftop pool and a gym. The locker room has a dry sauna, but no jacuzzi.

Their gym is big and has wonderful views! There are strength and cardio machines as well as weights and punching bag. They even have professional fitness trainers who can help you with your workout needs. In case you wanted to just workout without staying at the hotel, they have gym memberships available.

What you should really come here for is their lunch and dinner. I’ve been to Eastwood a lot of times so was surprised that I never knew about this restaurant because it was such a good place. I found it better than a lot of the restaurants in Eastwood, and pricing is very reasonable.
