It is envisaged that our website will have answered many of your questions. However, you are welcome to contact either Kathreen Burns or Wilson Briggs for any further information. If you have not viewed the Laurels and met the staff then perhaps you would like to contact us to arrange this. Alternatively, if you would like to come and spend an afternoon at the Laurels, at your convenience, this may also be accommodated.

A pdf document is available from our website which includes a copy of the Laurels most recent inspection report and their complaints procedure.
