Very friendly, helpful and excellent kids options. Never been disappointed with my meals here, love the dishes. I actually was staying in a sister hotel but this food quality and variety is much better. Well done to all members of this restaurant.

I was so peeved with the whole experience after dining last Saturday. I ordered the Rib Eye Fillet with the chips and alioli. I clearly asked for the aioli when I ordered and the waitress repeated it. The alioli did NOT arrive with the steak and when I asked for it I was lectured about it and told that it didn't usually come with the meal! Why was it clearly written like that on the menu? The process of asking for the alioli contributed to spoiling the experience as I don't like complaining or at least arguing with staff at the table. Earlier I also noticed a nearby table had a similar experience. Once the meal started, and the steak was excellent, there was not the usual follow-up of being asked about the food and when I paid again no enquiry came forth. The staff appeared to be taking everything far too casually and obviously with a "don't care" attitude. I have dined there in the past and always enjoyed it but I doubt if I will dine there again. How disappointing.

Stake was very good, side vegetables - very small dish. Surely few peaces of steamed broccoli, collie-flower and beans would not cost that much and not take much effort to prepare. Entry - confit duck was more like a bacon and salad with three peaces of duck - the salad was good but too much bacon. Service at the bar - we got at the restaurant early and had a few drinks. It was very hard to get some service - waitress was chatting to 2 guests and totally ignored the rest of us. Service at the restaurant was good. Atmosphere - it was more like a Sports bar with 2 TVs in it. I was expecting a classy restaurant as I thought that NOVOTEL is a bit more classier.

You menu has recently changed but I don't believe that it has improved. Previous food choices were better. Further, you used to offer bread on arrival. Nice touch. No longer do this, disappointing.

Having made a confirmed booking (i.e. they confirmed by email) I was told the venue was being used for a function and I could have a bar table - totally unsatisfactory, we went elsewhere.

Unfortunately one of the most disapointing meals / experience at an Accor restaurant. Booked as Mother's Day lunch special. Arrived at 1pm to an empty restaurant. Wait staff appeared uncertain what the promotion menu was (which to our surprise was just choosing form the standard menu). After sorting our what could be ordered and placing the order, we waited about an hour to get our food. (there was only another 2 tables of 3 and 2 that arrived after us). No bread was available as not part of the promotion menu! When food came, one dish had a hair in the dish and was returned. The other dishes were just OK, but we were so hungry...it was more like afternoon tea! Desert plate was pre-made and not that impressive..just losts of chocolate. Lane should not have bothered advertising a Mother's Day promo, nor opened for business at all! Extremely disappointing.

I found it a little pricey for what it was. Great place if you are staying at the hotel and don't want to or have time to go any where else. Menus is a bit limited for mains I felt. Maybe less entre choices. Not much atmosphere and a little noisy. In saying that the food I had was nice but doesn't make me say that I would go back there.

We ordered a pasta dish which my partner like and and she had it twice before at your restaurant. However this time the taste was different, it had less sauce. When asked the waiter that why is it different and he offered to give us some extra tomato sauce in a bowl??? I mean who offers that for a full cooked meal?? It is just stupid if you ask me as I use to be a chef at Marriott. In addition, the waiter then took it to be recooked with more sauce which then I think they forgot to bring the dish back for over 25-30 mins. By then my partner wasn't even hungry. The service was really poor as nobody came to check for that 30 mins whether we are ok? I ordered confit duck which was over cooked as I have had that dish at your restaurant pereviusly as love and absolutely lived it the first time. However the taste was still good it was over cooked. And what was new to us it we ordered a calamari entree and no entree plates were given? It's quite strange that you provide an entree and fork and knife but no entree plates. What about the people who like to eat with cutlery in a plate? Overall the experience was good however I definitely would not recommend anyone for food. I went there thinking that it will be same good experiences that we had in the past but disappointed. Thanks
