Best chocolate fondue! Bad hot food/mains

I'm a bit of a dessert snob and I've never seen the point of a chocolate fondue. I prefer eating fresh strawberries, what's the point of dipping them in chocolate?! boy was i wrong!

The conservatory breakfast is something to be seen. There everything you would expect from a western breakfast, then Asian, Indian and European options. Also a waffle and pancake bar, and 3 chocolate fountains!!

When booking I mentioned twice about a table buy the window as it was for a special occasion my dad's 75th birthday. I also mentioned the day before when I called to change seating from 5 to 4. We were sat in a corner next to the bar where staff were rushing past every minute. I didn't find the staff... More

Had buffet breakfast here. The place was very busy. Buffet selection was not great as well and wait staff did not care much. Not looking forward to go there again!

The choice was amazing. Bacon was like it was cooked on the BBQ. Beautiful icecream to have with fresh waffles or pancakes. Fantastic chocolate fountain. Fresh smoothies. Eggs cooked to order, great selection of juice, pastries, hot asian food, fruit. Everything you could ask for was there. Service was fantastic. One man even suggested a few places that were great...

One of the only things which was a little annoying was there was an orange, dark and white chocolate fountain and not a milk chocolate! Other then that it was great with a good variety of cuisines!

At $103pp you need to make the menu work for you. Basically that means eat as much seafood as you can to get your money worth. Make sure you go hungry as well.The food quality in general is very good. Dessert selection excellent. Given the noise and movement of everyone up and down gives the impression of a smorgys though.... More
