This is a reliable choice for a buffet within a 5 star hotel. The food is varied, with lots of different cuisines so great for a group (you see a lot of group celebrations here). The weekend can be very heavy on seafood, but most people like that at a buffet.
My only comment would be on the most recent trip the lamb joint on the carvery was 'seared' and too rare. I enjoy rare beef but the lamb was raw, and should be 'pink'. I saw lots of plates with the lamb left, which I guess means others shared my concerns.
All in all an excellent buffet with a good range of food to suit all tastes.
