I have been at the hotel on a business trip since 22 August. The staff at the restaurant who has seen me daily for breakfast and lunch have been amazing, they make me feel part of the family seeing that I am so far away from my own.

Been many times to this restaurant. Even had Christmas dinner once ( never again ) mostly a good place to eat , but service and quality can vary. On the whole as the title says not bad, but much the same as many similar places.
