“Probably nice if it's not busy”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Unfortunately we arrived for breakfast at a busy time. Had to wait for a table to be freed up, then my family of 4 went to get our food from the buffet. Came back with our plates to find someone else had been given our table. Had to 5mins for another table to come available by which time our b'fast was cold. Toasters and coffee machine were slow and always had 5 people waiting to use them. Giving up on the nice Flat White I asked for some filtered coffee instead, the staff member (Head Waitress lady?) turned her back on me and walked away. She did pass on my request onto another staff member and our coffee did eventually turn up. I know they were busy, but I left there feeling like we were a real nuisance. Food was very nice with a huge variety to suit everyone.

“Great high tea”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

We enjoyed a vegan high tea at the heritage. The staff are really lovely here and very efficient.

The decor of the hotel is a bit 'cold' and doesn't feel very welcoming so I wouldn't be tempted for an evening meal.

The high tea was served quickly and we had a good selection which makes a nice change :)

“Breakfast Time”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

This isn't a formal restaurant but set in an atrium in the middle of the Heritage Hotel . The inside bedrooms of the hotel look down upon Hectors - so if you want privacy & intimacy then this isn't for you. We had the continental breakfast here which was excellent. A lovely range to choose from including salmon and cold meats and even mizo soup. My favourite was the Bricher muesli and fig compote . The staff where friendly and welcoming. Overall breakfast was good value for money. Sadly we didn't go there for lunch or dinner but if I get the chance would like to try their afternoon tea ( the menu sounded lovely).

“Breakfast”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Hector's is more of a cafe than a formal restaurant. It's in an atrium of sorts and doesn't feel very intimate. It had an almost unfinished feel to it. However, the food and service are very good to excellent. The staff is friendly and welcoming and we enjoyed ourselves. We can't comment extensively on the menu since we had only a light breakfast.

Ate here several times with family during our stay in the hotel. Staff are so genuinely welcoming and helpful. Food is also very good. You get a plus because it's also in a great Hotel!
