The eggs were okay but the bacon was like chewing rubber and the coffees for room service were like going thru Maccas drive thru. Very weird for a S.A as its usually known for recycling why not just give us a Mug?

Breakfast is not 5 star but then you don't pay a 5 star price. The buffet is adequate and has more than enough choice and is very well priced. The menu items are also well priced and there is some variety. The service was friendly...More

Had breakfast during a 2 day stay due to convenience. Service ok, food ok, but nothing to write home about. Expensive for what you get, and as others are saying, no coffee included. Its a pity as they have a spectacular venue with great views.
