Excellent hotel - best we've ever stayed in

I thought my £13 sandwich was very nice but a tad expensive!My husband's seabass was lovely &"reasonably priced" Could've done with a few brighter lights(at my age I like to see what I'm eating!) but the staff were very attentive and it was a pleasant evening

Wow this was an amazing experience. I'm not sure I've been anywhere where the staff were so friendly and welcoming. Amazing team of people. The afternoon was tea was so delicious, the welcome cocktail was great and what a beautiful presentation. It was my first visit but will definitely come back and keep my eye out for future events here,... More

The ambiance was good supported by a sparkling table layout and a light airy feel to the establishment. The menu was limited but provided adequate... More

Our party of six returned to this wonderful restaurant after a gap of six months.. Yet again nothing at all could be faulted and on the contrary our Afternoon Tea was magnificent. The quality of the sandwiches, the scones (my particular favourite) and the cakes was first class. To complete the experience, the service from our delightful waitress (Tressy?) was... More

A friend of mine and I ate in The Terrace Restaurant in the Amba Hotel on Friday evening (10/04/15), and had a very good meal in pleasant surroundings. The service was good, and not overly attentive. The menu was varied, offering a good choice. The bill was also a pleasant surprise at around £35 each...which is not bad for this... More
