We had breakfast at Stamps Cafe...it was an average meal. One consisting of eggs, bacon and toast, the other was pancakes and eggs. Service was good, prices reasonable...only beef...it's in the Best Western Hotel building and there is no sign outside saying where it is. Great if you are a local... read more

Been here many times. Sometimes food is good, other times not so good. Really depends on who's cooking that day I guess. I ordered a sweet teriyaki chicken salad and it was amazing! But I have ordered it 3 times since then and was disappointed every time. Waitresses are friendly, and it is usually easy to find a quiet place... More

This is becoming a bit of a habit for Jaeger Schnitzel. There's lots of items we have yet to check out. No doubt we will as we've enjoyed the service. Thanksgiving we took the mother-in-law there for Turkey special. It was pretty much as good as home-made except my mother was not the best cook ;). MORE gravy would have... More

We often don't eat in a hotel as they tend to be expensive but this one wasn't too expensive; the quantity, selection and service were very good both for dinner & breakfast. As the hotel has an on site restaurant it doesn't do a tariff with free breakfast.

My husband and I went to the Stamps Cafe for a quiet dinner very disappointing food. We started with calamari - very greasy and no flavour - this consisted of a heap of it drowning in fat on a platter with no garnish a tiny patch of wilted lettuce. I ordered lasagna - which consisted of obviously precooked noodles and... More

We attended a party in the Arrowsmith room and found the food and service to be excellent. There was a fine selection of salads at the buffet. The turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing were hot and delicious. The desserts were tasty and the fresh fruit was a perfect end to the sumptuous meal. Special requests were seen to right away...

This is a good place to take my grandparents, but for my more 'hip' relatives and friends I would take them some place else. The food is 'okay' nothing spectacular, and the atmosphere is dated.

Had room service two nights in a row. Lots of choices and healthy alternatives. It must have been good to have it twice.
