Over the years Garden Court Brassiere has not changed a lot and that's why when we have a celebration we keep going back. The menu is tight but with most tastes covered and the wine list features the best of the local vineyards. The Torlesse Pinot Gris was a real stand out for our group. Salmon and Blue Cod were...

food was good and the service was excellent. We ate here since checking in late after a long overseas flight. We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food.

We had dinner and breakfast at this restaurant. The service was quick and friendly. The food was mediocre. The breakfast was particularly below average. The coffee was close to undrinkable and most of the fruit was either canned or had been left out too long. For dinner we had a fish and chips which was OK and a Caesar Salad... More

We have stayed here for 4 nights in the last two months. Have eaten at the "Brasserie" a few times - twice from included breakfast. Sure, its pretty much in need of a revamp, but it is an older hotel dining room. The garden is really special and that makes up for the rest of it. Sure the dining room... More

We tried to book a table for dinner, again fairly impossible as they had so many large groups so ended up in the bar for our meal instead, not ideal as they only have small tables so we had to rearrange a few for the 5 of us! Most of the time the lady behind the bar was in the... More

We have eaten at Garden Court Brasserie three times in the last month. The food is consistently good, especially the roast beef. For the vegetarians in the family, there has been choice of interesting menu items. We really appreciate the low volume of music, so you can hear everyone in the group speak. We will be back, and can highly... More

Short number of choices for dinner, although my chicken was ok. Prices did not surprise me, not cheap but affordable. Good service, but kitchen rather slow. Not glamorous facilities, but ok for a bite or a drink. Due to lack of better alternatives at a walking distance, this place is ok for those staying at the Chateau on the Park... More

The Chateau on the Park Hotel is part of the Hilton group but it is not your standard hotel. It is close the the botanical gardens but you might think you are a part of the gardens with all the nice landscaping on the property. The roses were in full bloom and gorgeous. We very much enjoyed our 3 nights... More

Dined here with a large group(29) and our orders were sent ahead of our seating. I am not sure if the problem was with the kitchen or not having enough service staff. We waited 45+ minutes for our starters and another 45+ minutes for our main courses. The food was tasty but probably would have eaten anything when it is... More
