Visited Orchids with a group of 10 people. Even though it was a large group, the servers were outstanding. They were on top of everything from filling water glasses promptly to quickly taking away used dishes and silverware. Our main waiter recommended two outstanding bottles of wine from the extensive list. They were great. The white was fruity and dry... More

We stayed at the Hayfield Manor for one night, my husband and I wanted to enjoy a “fancy” meal together. We made reservations and were very excited to experience a multiple course meal together, we were not disappointed. The setting of the restaurant was romantic and beautiful. The staff was amazing; I had never experienced such hospitality and professionalism. I... More

I know this hotel is 5 star and that might reflect the prices. We enjoyed our meal in Orchids Restaurant. I had the lamb main course and felt there was a lot of salt. Also it was quite difficult to eat as there was too much soup. My husband felt his steak was a bit bland. We really enjoyed the... More
