“Ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

We arrived around 9.30 for a group meal following an intensive day's work. The service was prompt and friendly and the Buffett provided a good range of choice for individual preference. Although the food looked good my main course was surprisingly lacking in interesting flavour. However my pudding was delicious.

“Long wait for cold food!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012 via mobile

We decided to try the hotel restaurant after being indecisive about where to go in town and after looking at the many positive reviews on trip advisor. Whilst the waiter was very attentive during service and recommended the tapas buffet, we (3 lads) decided to order steaks. We were aware that the steaks would take approx 20 mins but after 45 mins we were presented with what looked like good cuts of meat. However, the steaks were luke warm and served on cold plates. In addition the sides were of a similar temperature with the vegetables actually being stone cold. We mentioned it to the waiter but said we would eat the food rather than wait another hour. Very disappointing for a 4-star hotel.

“Good evening meal but very busy at breakfast time.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

We had breakfast here every day. The food choice was very good but it does get busy. It seemed like a school canteen at times. We also had an evening meal. They do a tapas buffet for £24 but we opted for a grill menu and had a steak which was very tasty and well cooked. Thank you
