So friendly and inviting. Quality food options at great prices
The food was terrible. In our room, the pamphlet said a succulent seafood buffet. When we approached the seafood area there was a choice of oysters, prawns and mussels. All of which tasted like it had been defrosted out of a packet - very disappointing. Then headed to the hot food and there was fish curry, chicken curry, creamy mussels, steamed veges, roared potatoes, rice and miso soup. No roast meats or plainer types of meats. We left hungry as the food was terrible. Absolutely not to the standard of 4 star hotel. Perhaps we should have eaten from the set menu...
Not enough variety in buffet. I can't eat raw oysters so some crab would have been good. Salads were good. Too many spicy dishes in main meals...more variety. Decided to pay extra for 12 Kilpatrick oystets after 30 minutes wait they were dry and very spicy ...chilli on them...chef didn't know what he was doing!! Should close at 10 pm NOT 9pm om Sat night We were held up with lift being out of action for an hour..hour..and didn't arrive until 8 pm...so only had an hour. Started taming everything away..even desserts no staggering of food removal.
Buffet seafood dinner and breakfast as an Accor Plus member is good value for money. Decor is a lot like a food court or food hall and less like a restaurant. It was clean but don't expect an intimate restaurant dining experience where you have some space to relax, chat and appreciate the food. Service was slow when it came to removing plates ftom the table and surly when we put the empty plates on an empty adjoining table. So overall good value family meal but keep expectations low on service, decor and layout.
We ate at the restaurant on Saturday night for the seafood buffet. Whilst the food was lovely, the service was terrible. Our water glasses were filled up, and a drink ordered. The restaurant was not busy, if it was I would of understood the wait time to receive our first drink. In the hour we were there, our water glasses were not topped up, our plates were not cleared and we were not approached to see if we would like another drink, even though we tried to get the attention of the staff. We left to go to the lobby bar to have a second drink, but that had just closed up for the evening at 7.50pm.
We were very impressed with taste of the food and really enjoyed the seafood which was very fresh. Great service - quick & friendly. Surprised no icecream machine but they were more than happy to bring out icecream in a bowl so happy husband :) The coffee machine and I weren't on friendly terms but staff very happy to help and save the day twice lol :) They had soft glowing table lights and a young lady playing guitar and singing with backing music which was a great addition to the night. We will be back :)
Fresh food. Staff were friendly and attentive. Lovely experience. Highly recommended.
The staff were friendly and efficient. My Mum is in a wheelchair and from Security to the Restaurant Staff I could not fault their service The Buffet was very enjoyable I would certainly go back again
good service and friendly staff.
Good quality prawns and oysters with other hot and cold dishes.
Oysters were very tiny and poor flavour. Prawns were not great. Dessert options quite limited and basic from what ive experienced at other Novotels
The food and restaurant atmosphere was not worth the money. The prawns and oysters were great, but the hot food was too oily and not a great selection. We were seated and assisted quite quickly, but no one came back for our drinks order or to clear our table etc... We had to chase staff to assist us. Wouldn’t recommend or go back.
Not much food to eat if you need to pay for $69. The only spotlighted food are prawns and oysters only , others are very so so if you say it is a seafood buffet
ran out of our beer we liksd.. A la carte menu not as comphensive as it was on last visit.
really disappointed with the dinner. was supposed to be a highlight of our holiday. we love seafood. the prawns were rubbery. no ice cream. no kids selection. very little for a smorgasbord buffet. nothing like other Novotel seafood buffet I've been to.
The staff were very friendly and attentive. Service was great. We had the buffet - not much variety especially for kids. The buffet could be more extensive and cater for kids a little better.
Food was delicious and fresh. They were quite under staffed, we had to wait a while to be seated then wait a while to pay our bill. Definitely worth booking ahead.
The service was excellent, the quality of food was also excellent I just think a little more variety of seafood would make it better value.
Would be nice to see Roast beef or Roast Chicken on the buffet mains. But overall throughly loved it and felt really nice to know the staff care about those little extra special occassions and brought me out a birthday cake. Thankyou for the awesome experience xxx
This was one of the worse meals we have ever had at a Novotel. We were ripped off so disappointed and it was our wedding anniversary as well. Really not happy
Prawns brilliant. Great service. Deserts acceptable. Very enjoyable.
The atmosphere was very dull and uncomforting. We ordered the seafood buffet but there was only three seafood options; prawns, oysters and mussels. Prawns and mussels were great, but the oysters didn't seem fresh. It was pretty much a Sizzler with fewer options. Dessert options were very limited and there was no ice cream
We had a lovely evening. Food was lovely and good variety. Would come back.
THE STAFF WERE EXCELLENT
