This is by far the worst I have ever experienced at Brighton Novetel. Our table was not ready so we were told to go and get food and it would be ready on our return. We would have liked a drink first. No waiters could be found so after 25 min I got up and asked a waiter if we could order drinks.I asked the waitress if they are short staffed and her reply" They didnt realise they were busy and were calling in more staff to assist. Our table was never cleared once so we stacked our dirty dishes on the vacant table next to us.All the tables surronding us were stacked with dirty dishes, even the waiters station. Prawns , Calamari, Poached Salmon and oysters were fantastic. None of the food on the buffet table was labeled.Hot food selection very poor.Rice, noodles, Braised chicken thighs, Roast potatoes, Grilled fish. Cheese Platter consisted of Cheddar and Blue cheese.A small amount of Camenbert but that was never replenished. The desert spoons were the bamboo disposable spoons and the tea spoons were wooden paddlepop sticks. Really, and this is a 5 star place!! At approx 8pm I went to the ladies bathroom and upon entering a man was in there cleaning (not that it needed to be clean).He continued cleaning whilst I was in there. When I finalised the account I asked the young lady if she could get the manager to call me the next day about our experience and I have not heard from anybody as yet. I have been to Bright Novetel many times in the past and I can assure you I wont be back. I will travel a bit further and go to Sheraton on the Park in which I have been to in the past.

Food was fresh and prepared well. Towards the end it was not replenished, especially the dessert section.

Front staff who asked about the booking table was not friendly. She was not smiling at all and used unfriendly voice tone when asking about voucher.

We were disappointed that we were unable to order from the a la carte menu as my elderly parents were not able to get up and down to the buffet all night. Maybe we incorrectly assumed that you would offer a la carte or buffet as many of the Novotel's do this.The reason given was that you only do this on Tuesday and Wednesday nights and another reason from another waitress was that the kitchen was so busy with a conference meal as well but as customer, they aren't particularly satisfactory reasons. The head waitress did offer my mother the a la carte after we mentioned it but Mum did not want to be made a fuss of so it was appreciated but we all would have had a la carte if we were allowed.

I think it would be better if there was a greater selection of hot seafood. Our main reason for attending was the for the seafood. However, all the food we had was great.

This is our 5th time here for Saturday dinner and I’ve been 3 times for breakfast before too and each time was a great experience with delicious food and excellent service. This time was definitely not. Firstly waited a while at the door even being the first in the queue but seems there was an inexperienced officer struggling with a customer payment. The food was less than average this time, couldn’t find the lobster and was then told it was at the cooking station. It was green, chewy and horrible. It was not a pleasant experience at all. Had to tell a female waiter several times to bring a washbowl and she kept taking to others and didn’t get ours until we were almost finished. To top it off after we left and went to bathroom to wash our hands, upon leaving the bathroom the front desk waiter chased us out accusing us of not paying for our drinks. We didn’t order any drinks. We told him that and said what drinks and he said he thought we had drinks. You do not chase people out, accusing them infront of everyone as if we were trying to get away without paying for drinks and then say oh I thought you ordered drinks. Check the bill first! I was planning to bring family visiting from Canada next month but not anymore unfortunately.

Serving pre-frozen fish is not a good practice Quality of food served has been degrading we informed the manager in the past 3 times to improve, however, we get a different excuse We are regularly dining at this location but this might be last time

Sashimi and burrito area is very good! Prawns and oysters very fresh Lobster wasn’t the greatest Not a big fan of the deserts, they’re flavourless Ice cream has improved. Great for families with kids.

I have to brutally honest. I felt that for non seafood eaters there was not enough options. The corn and chicken soup was prominently corn soup, I had to hunt for the chicken. Oh yes there was a lamb dish, chicken dish, potatoes, steamed broccoli and some stoggy Brazilian rice. The fruit platter???? Watermelon was disgusting, whoever picks the fruit for that platter needs to know that watermelon has to be a deep red colour for it to have any flavour, whatsoever. All in all, I have been to way better seafood buffets.. would we go back probably not... It was disappointing because I had brought our friends from the US.
