The restaurant is of old elegance. We tried the tasting menu. If only they changed to chicken breast to duck, it would be perfect! Spectacular desserts. The chef and the waitresses are all very friendly. Great fine dining experience.

So many fantastic flavours at this buffet. Vegan friendly and gluten free friendly. Loved the hash browns, sautéed mushrooms and broccolini. Also got some fabulous granola with plenty of fresh fruit. Would definitely return!

We had both buffet breakfast and dinner here and enjoyed both meals. The staff were friendly professional and helpful on both occasions. The atmosphere is good as is the lounge bar for a nightcap.
