The Place is a buffet style restaurant with good choice of food - fish, meat, salad and tapas. Relaxed atmosphere with fab staff. The Waiting staff can't do enough for you - special thanks to Andreas, Davide, Riccardo and Caroline's. For putting up with me and kids over period of couple of weeks :)

Breakfast was excellent both in quantity and quality. However, don't bother to go for dinner buffet as it didn't even look like a tea buffet.

Buffet style spanish cuisine restaurant. Good selection of cured meats (chorizo, ham, salami, etc) cheese, and cooked fish and meats. Good bread and very good desserts. It's inside the hotel and it's very affordable so you can't expect it to be very fancy. Really good place for business lunch/dinner and large groups (which you can take for a drink to... More

Nice lunch and evening buffets, with a large choice, all you can eat. For me, the best buffet in London. Breakfast ok too but you have much better breakfasts in other hotels (but also more expensive!)

The food here is of very high calibre, and the paella is simply wow; but the truth is, I don’t know which deserves more credit the food or customer service. Frankly, both are deserving. From the starters, through to the mains, salads and desserts, the dishes are first-rate. The taste is precise and on-point, and the presentation is delightful and... More
