We stayed at the Golden Tulip hotel, and ate here every night. There is a vast choice of food, beautifully cooked. It is all buffet style, with comfortable seating and a good atmosphere. There are soups and salads to start with, all lovely. For the main course there is a chef who will stir fry your own selection of food in a sauce of your choice, and one who will cook meat you have chosen. There is sushi and ready made meals - the beef casserole is great! There are very nice puddings or ice cream - all again for you to help yourself to - and plenty of tea/coffee/soft drinks. The service is good, with plates cleared away quickly and everyone is very helpful.

“Nice Buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

The breakfast was a huge buffet with a full English breakfast and Continental breakfast with omelettes and fried eggs available on demand. It impressed me that there was an orange juicer machine for guests to use which of course meant freshly squeezed orange juice was available and is a superb addition to the breakfast not commonly found in other hotels, if not included in the room it is €15 which is fair.
It was nice that the Dinner buffet was reduced by €5 to €24.95 per person for hotel guests (I do not know whether this is ongoing or a limited offer), from what I saw most guests took advantage of that offer and I would have only dined in the restaurant with that offer which I did all 5 evenings! The dinner buffet offers a comprehensive selection with Japanese food, meat steaks and fish grilled on demand and international dishes such as beef stew, sweet and sour and lasagne. In addition to main courses there were chips, wedges, salad and vegetables as a side dish. An impressive selection of desserts was available with a chocolate fountain, cheesecake, profiteroles, fruit selection, cream, ice cream and pancakes available to order. It was also great that you could help yourself to soft drinks in the fridge, freshly squeezed orange juice and water as part of the package. It would have been nice if they had a daily special as there was no change in dishes.

Washrooms were kept clean as well and a good distance away from the eating area.

“Good variety”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

We opted to eat here on one night of our stay at the hotel where it is based ( the Golden Tulip West). Hotel guests got a discounted rate of €24.99 for two hours access to unlimited food and soft drinks. There was an excellent selection and a wide range of cuisines - a sushi bar, salads, soups, ready made options, or you could select meat/ stir fry to be cooked in front of you to your specification. There was also pizza, chips and fried options, so something for everyone. For desert, there was ice cream, fresh pancakes, fruit, pastry and pudding options. Soft drinks were self-service. All food was well cooked and tasty. Seats were comfortable and staff attentive. We left feeling very full up!
