    The food at the restaurant in the Amora Hotel is tasty and well presented, with a reasonable price tag. However service in the restaurant and bar let's the hotel down. Understand hotel under renovation so hopefully will see improvements in this area.More

    I had used the room service when it was the old Duxton hotel, and it was as great then, but the management changed hands when it was renamed to Amora. So I haven't used room service then.
