The breakfasts were delicious. Either off the menu or the buffet, it did not disappoint. The service was inconsistent though. One day it was fast, the next very very slow.

If you are staying in the hotel, this is a convenient choice and price is probably not a concern. The food is good but overpriced.

Food was fresh and nicely prepared. Willie the Manager kept things orderly no matter how crowded. No matter how crowded you never felt rushed. Buffet was on the expensive side. We arranged for a package in advance which paid for it except for the tip.

Super strong colours on walls are festive, but a sensory overload, especially in the morning n for kids. Probably added to the sense of business. Breakfast buffet was basic, food quality ok.

Good breakfast buffet but a bit overpriced for $34; service was slow. Took over 30 minutes to get a la carte omelette and pancakes! Coffee bar offers >20 beverages which was nice but it's $6 for a cappucino and $12 for a smoothie!

Great breakfast buffet - have to get a omelette made by Jeremy. He is great to talk to - so friendly. My favorite waitress was Susanell.

The variety of offerings was great and if something needed adjustments, they were most accommodating. The atmosphere was made even better due to the service we received and the view added to our experience.
