Vety Good Breakfast

Not cheap but a very good place for a hearty breakfast. Buffet has a very good selection and lots of different tastes catered for.

I really appreciated that the service was friendly at all hours of the day and night. They had excellent soups and chili, although I do wish the hot chocolate was not made with Hershey's syrup-but that is my pet peeve-they should shoot the chocolate fondue from the pub into warm milk and create excitement!

The service is very friendly and our servers usually call us by name, which is a nice touch, unfortunately the food is not very good. The first day we ordered the buffet which was dissapointing, the selections were cold and dried out from sitting in a window (which happens in a buffet). The next day we figured we'd try out...

We have been to the Poppy for dinner and breakfast and it is outstanding. Dinner is great food in a great atmosphere and attention to detail. The breakfast buffet is one of the best, everything you would want and more, the selection and quality of the food is truly breathtaking. The view from the room at breakfast is one of... More

With the enormous volume of patrons enjoying the Hotel facilities, a termination point for closing all food and beverage outlets becomes a must for the next day "Fresh Start"! The Poppy Brasserie remains open 24 hours and is serving a generous selection of deli items and refreshments. Another feather in the Chateau LL's hat!

For $30 for a hot buffet this is rather pricey, but the food and service are excellent. I ate enough twice so that I didn't need to eat much lunch, which overall saved some money. Great views, too!

Food overpriced. Area filthy; insufficient staff to cope with the demand - hence the area being filthy; Staff were stressed because they were overworked and therefore not happy.

We had the buffet breakfast. Had a large option to choose from, from bacon. & eggs to cereal. The orange juice was also very nice.

We stayed at the chateau for three nights in December and dined at most of the restaurants there and were dismayed by the brunch we had on our third day. While it is one thing that server seemed to struggle with the English language, we are able to forgive that. It is another thing that I sat with dirty plates... More
