We had a great night, a quick dinner and a drink, fantastic service. Walked away saying that it was one of the most tasty meals we have had in a long while. Free easy parking right beside the hotel and only a few minutes from town.

The presentation of our meal was great but unfortunately it was cold. The entrees were served with the main meal but that was fine except the garlic bread was so hard we could not eat it.

Arranged a party of 6 to dine at the restaurant as I had heard favourable reports. From the moment we arrived the service was very ordinary at best. We were directed to our reserved table by pointing ie. it is over there. We then waited for a significant period of time but no one came near us. Eventually we figured there was no table service so went to the bar to order a drink. Then waited for again a significant period before I then went to the bar to find out how we order a meal. The staff member then came over and took our meal order. Four of our party ordered pork belly which was disgraceful. The presentation and portion size was fine but everyone including myself complained that the pork had a strong artificial flavour and was quite unpalatable. Another of our party ordered chicken curry which flavour wise was fine but the portion was so small there was only four bite sized pieces of chicken in the bowl. For around $27.00 that is completely unacceptable. Both my partner and I felt quite unwell by the time we went to bed and I woke up at 1.30am with the most horrendous stomach pains and spent the next hour on the toilet. The other couple who had the pork belly also complained to us the next day that they felt unwell and one of them was up during the night. As an ACCOR member I am very disappointed and embarrassed as I recommended we go to the Ibis restaurant for dinner and then all of us have such a substandard experience.

Booked a table at 4pm for 8pm, recurved a call at 7pm telling us kitchen closes at 8 so if we wanted a meal we had to be earlier which was a struggle with plans. When we arrived we were told the advertised $14 wasn’t on offer, and when we ordered the $42 steaks the rare steak was inedible as it was cooked “blue” and the medium was extremely well done and tough. Disappointing for a $94 meal

We have previously eaten really well here but this time it went good. Steak was over cooked...pastry was soggy...pork had only a small amount of crackling the rest was inedible....I think I would suggest that if COVID is affecting the quality then stick to a cheaper menu....burgers ribs etc

The beef cheeks were so good. The size of the dish was amazing and it’s such good value for money! The dish itself was also delicious.

The eggs was missing for the breakfast board. I requested a greetings note to say Happy Birthday. It was never done as it was a surprise note for my mother’s bithday on Xmas day. And lastly the hot chocolate wasn’t as nice but had to drink it.

My steak was chewy and fatty and way over priced. The service was average. We had a booking and they didn't have a table ready and weren't friendly when asking about validating our ticket for parking.
