slow service

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

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.

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. On our first night we ate in the restaurant, and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Before we arrived, we also booked for Sunday lunch in the restaurant at 1pm, so that we could enjoy a good meal before travelling home. After our meal on the first night, we looked forward to our Sunday... More
