I have been here a few times for meals either with the family and with guests. Food is consistently delivered after a lengthy wait and this once with really important guests we were served very tough barbecued meat. I have since struck them off my list of good restaurants. We recently took to purchasing fresh bread from there. They bake... More

The ambiance, the grounds, the setting is quite enchanting. The food however spoils it all. On two occasions, myself and my entire family have suffered stomach upset from the quite blank, always cold food served with stale salads. I would wish for management to review the policy on what I thought are value added services. Makes no sense to charge... More

We have held several conferences here for work. Conferences of more than 20 people can stall the entire food delivery system. We brought 100 staff last year and had to wait over an hour for all our employees to get served drinks. Then on a second visit with 19 staff, it was faster. If you go by yourself or with... More

Lovely ambience, clean rooms, courteous staff. I spent a week here and enjoyed every bit of my time. The only issue I had was with the restaurant, food orders took awhile before been served and the food when it came was not as tasty as other restaurants in town.

Our group of 15 wanted to have lunch and love exploring new interesting eateries. The location and ambience is really great - our first impression - simply impressed. Service and quality of food served however does not match the enchanting establishment. Food served cold and with stale salads. Managements response was half-hearted and bordered on indifference. Could not wait to... More

Had the chance to entertain my guests on the grounds via a double grill package offered by the hotel.Very nice grounds . Food was good but quantities were minimal (as compared to what the package promised) The drinks were very expensive but nevertheless........ the service was the poorest I have seen in a long while. Initially took twenty minutes to... More

We decide to have a late lunch on a Saturday Afternoon so we decide to try out the place. Ambience is good and we decided to chill out next to the swimming pool.The place was not busy but it took 15 minutes for the service personnel to notice us. We had to stand up and call for a waiter who... More

A good facility located in a cool environment , well suited for a family outing. The structure is well designed and maintained. The play field good for group outings. They need to improve their speed of service and be more organised. We had booked earlier but on the d day they could't get our menu right which was so inconveniencing... More
