“2 different standards?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

Stayed at the hotel on our wedding night and went out for dinner there, had an amazing moist steak that was huge and delicious, with great service.

Went back again to the restaurant without staying at the hotel recently to have the same, we were served a tough leathery piece of steak that was almost as thin as a fruit leather. Had to send back a dish twice due to them putting something all over the meal that one of our diners was allergic too (even stating numerous times while ordering that this person was allergic to such items). Service was atrocious and we had to wait over 1.5 hours for the main to be delivered to the table in the first place. Would not go again. It really did seem like there was one product for the guests of the hotel, and another for off the road diners.

“Great Continental Buffet Breakfast for hungry boys”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

Was nice to turn up for breakfast at any time and know you could eat straight away - standard breakfast buffet but fresh and more of everything available on request.
