I'm afraid to say the coffee was very average if you make a suggestion that something in the cabinet would go very nicely with your coffee I might purchase it

Spent the day diving the Poor Knights. Need a quick bite to eat before running off to the next adventure. And Oceans delivered. I had the catch of the day. It was perfect. My cousins had fish and chips and they loved it. I look forward to eating there again.

We found service friendly in both the hotel and in the restaurant. The staff there were very helpful and food was good too. The dessert we had was a little over the top for just a basic dessert, but it was tasty. Prices were reasonable

Excellent breakfast, but it is a hotel and the service and atmosphere let it down. Great for a quick breakfast.

Been here twice and finally given up. Poor quality coffee but biggest frustration was the breakfast. Had eggs and asked for bacon to be excluded (I'm a vegetarian). I asked for the option to have bacon portion to be swapped out for tomato or mushroom as per what they offer on the side. They said they'd have to charge me... More

Had breakfast as we found the staff very good in the bar the night before. Ok, not a huge choice of food but no complaints and would try dinner also.

Thank macfod
