Second night it was 2 fillet steaks, and cooked just right, blue and medium rare. No complaints at all. An... read more

Slow service, waited over ten minutes to be offered drinks and menu , restaurant wasn't busy so would have expected better service. Food lacked taste and variety of choice. Buffet was a not piping hot . For a large hotel chain would expect a better standard of food wouldn't go back .

Friendly staff, slow dinner service, limited offer on menu. I am assuming the issue is less chefs, as there were plenty of service staff doing nothing! However, breakfast buffet was faultless.

Yep as the title says - pricey but after a long drive I'd settle for this. Looked after you well, attentive but not overbearing.

Food is mediocre and place is super loud and noisy. Even the waiter had to scream in my ear... because of the noise in the dining room

When we checked in the lady on the front desk recommended the hotels restaurant. The restaurant was not particularly busy. The service was very slow but friendly. We both ordered steak based on the receptionist recommended. We asked for medium and both got rare. One was so rare we sent it back. A new dinner arrived about 10 minutes later... More

We were a large group and we liked how were were served fairly simultaneously. Siva was very pleasant and attentive as was Mohan from the Bar. I apologise if I have not spelled their names correctly!

Dropped in for lunch after a difficult run on the M25, and found the staff very willing to help although we were close to the 'limit' for their stated opening hours, and indeed ran well over time, The menu was fairly restricted, but the carvery was good and the kitchen very willing to help out in catering for the particular...

I am staying here alone on business and went to the restaurant. The people are really nice and considerate that you are a female and on your own. Food was served and it was delicious. I recommend.
