Yummy Pizza

Best Pizza and cheesecake desert I have had in a long time. Highly recommend this place. They do eat in, takeaway or they deliver to your hotel room.

A pleasant little Italian pizza and pasta restaurant which has both a sit-down and take-away section. We were staying nearby and dined in with our 4 kids (aged 9 to 14). While I could not say there was anything really wrong, but there was nothing to rave about either. The food was very ordinary compared to what we expected from... More

Clean, modern, beautifully decorated, the most comfortable hotel bed we've ever tried. The staff was excellent. We loved our stay. Highly recommend this hotel. You get more than your money's worth.

It is small inside and the atmosphere feels a little rushed, but the service is great and the staff are wonderful. If you are looking for a nice place... More

Stayed at the Darling for the first time as my husband wanted to go to the Casino. Had two nights there and loved it. The room was fairly roomy and well appointed and a great location. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Thought the breakfast at Bistro 80 was very poor and not good service at all. Had dinner... More

A delicious Japanese restaurant with a good choice for the non-fish eater like myself, and a larger variety of fish as from what i saw on the tables around me. Good atmosphere and a great feel

We stayed at The Darling last night. After a bit of a rocky start (bellman let my husband carry all the bags - not sure what that was all about..?), we arrived and were immediately given an upgrade (always a great way to start..!), but when we arrived at our room were just totally amazed a the size and the...

food OK, eventually, took 1 hr to arrive, then 1 meal sent back as meat was blue rare (ordered med-well) everything was bordering on too salty to eat and drinks took 45mins to arrive after prompting, chips smothered in chicken salt
