We enjoyed the breakfast here each day during out stay. It had everything that you would want to eat, We could not fault the food as there were so many choices. Terrific coffee machine. Staff friendly and whole area kept immaculate.

A great place to have a meal but this means its highly advisable to book in advance! Seriously! if it wasn't acceptable, there would be no need to book!

The buffet dinner is, well, beige. 2 roast options, no Asian or indian flavours, just bland bland bland. Apart from the salsa, not a single tomato in the buffet.

A group of us ate here on Thursday night for the $35 head buffet. There was a reasonable selection but the foods were tasteless. It was presented well but the hot food was only luke warm, the gravy bland & the salads were outdated & boring. The soggy cauliflower & cheese dish looked unappetising and people that had the roast... More

Everything we had for breakfast this morning was of good quality, eg lean bacon, perfectly cooked poached eggs. The grilled tomatoes tasted home grown. A good choice was available. Did not feel hungry for the rest of the day.

Buffet style meals with plenty of choice. We had breakfast on 2 mornings and we found it offered plenty of fresh fruit etc. as well as various yogurts, cereals and cooked food to suit a variety of visitors. Evening dinner looked to be very, very busy with people queuing for their food but I didn't hear any complaints about the... More

My wife enjoyed her continental breakfast options whereas I didn't see many options for the cooked breakfast. Otherwise, the food was good.

Visited this venue on Australia Day with 6 other family members and was surprised by both the quality and service. Buffet style with choice of 3 hot meats, plus plenty of cold cuts, vegetables and salads. Lots of sweets choices.
