It's bland. It's boring. It's outdated. It's tasteless. A lot of it appears to be packet food. All of the cakes I have seen offered in other cafes and therefore must be bought in frozen packaged tasteless rubbish. The meats were overcooked, the gravy dish was empty, basically there are no flavours... There is a coffee machine. It's loud and... More

We are locals and go here with family every year in Sept. I would not recommend here unless you are staying in the hotel and really don't want to go elsewhere. The Buffett breakfast has all the basic breakfast items but the quality is poor and not great service. Firstly the coffee is from a machine that doesn't work properly... More

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. Seafood bake was marked a vegetarian?? Bain-Marie beige should be the restaurants slogan. Imagine you're stuck in a time warp, eating at a Sizzler restaurant circa 1990, then make it blander....

The food and service were both pleasing, but the buffet style set out makes it very difficult for wheelchair-bound persons to get the food they want without assistance.

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 It was presented well but the hot food was only luke warm, the gravy bland & the salads were outdated & boring.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.
