The good parts such as location and pretty good breakfast spread remain. It is interesting to note that they have canapes and a dessert corner, which is thoughful of the team. It's mainly local fare, so Asians and non-Asians looking for something apart from Western fare will be fine with it.
A word of caution though is to not travel during certain public holidays central to the community as their massage parlours (surrounding the hotel) all close. The hotel's one was also not open (although they advertised it was open till 10.30pm and we were there at 6pm) and the next day, it was fully booked so it was a disappointment.
And I reallly wish they would set up a non-smoking policy in the restaurant.
