Buffet breakfast was good value for money

We chose to eat breakfast here a couple of times because of the better options and are more complete to sustain you through a day of walking around! The menu choices for in-room service was not extensive and not cheap but they were always filling and tasted great. :)

A very pleasant dining experience, all the food was beautifully cooked, particularly note worthy was the gratin potatoes served with the Lamb cannons and deliciously cooked veg. Followed by cheese with a plum? relish and a selection of crackers: the relish was great. I did however think the mature cheddar was too mild, my personal preference for a mature cheddar... More

Pleasant enough with good service. The menu choices were not extensive but the food served was certainly more than adequate. The atmosphere was more functional than romantic though!

We used the hotel restaurant on recommendation from fellow travellers. Whilst the food was good and well presented, the restaurant lacked any atmosphere. Try the Hummingbird Cafe for a more interesting meal.

Hadn't really wanted to celebrate my birthday anywhere. Although he knew this, this my husband went ahead and booked The Grill at Amora in any event without telling me.

We dinned here whilst staying at the hotel. We were nicely surprised by the level of service, the presentation of the food, as well as the quantity and quality for the price we paid. We nearly ate out of the hotel that night and are glad we didn't.
