Stayed two weekend nights a week apart to pick up and deliver my dad to the airport. Lovely rooms as always and the choice for the continental breakfast was varied. After a full week on the road, we were tired and decided to have supper in the cafe. The boys went with the Spa club sandwiches and soup. The soup was a huge bowl of potato and bacon chowder and they loved it! I had a delicious salad and flatbread, all done up fresh.
Out waitress was very efficient but seemed rushed. She was more friendly or personable at the end. She was not rude, she checked on us from the counter and I wonder if she was fast-food trained? She just needs to pause at the table a bit to make it feel more attentive. This is a constructive suggestion, I hope, because she worked non stop while we were there, made our meals and cleaned up the kitchen.
We returned to our comfortable rooms with full bellies and relaxed for not having tried to get into a busy downtown restaurant.
Great job on the cafe. I'm sure we'll avail of it on our next visit too.
