We are sorry but this restaurant is not currently accepting online reservations through ResDiary.
Everything we had was absolutley lovely and the staff were very friendly and helpful overall a good venue
It was sometimes difficult to get the attention of staff in order to get service.
We chose your Restaurant to entertain our guests, and were not disappointed. We were all impressed with the quality of the food, the service and the relaxed atmosphere - Thank you.
We arrived at approximately 1:15pm, the majority of the buffets were empty and not replenished by the staff. I've been to many Novtel's throughout the world and this is by far a long way short and the WORST of all Novtel's I've been to in regards to quality of food, selection of food and quality of service provided. I made this booking and was nothing short of being totally embarrassed for my guest. I do not expect a refund, however, I would like a formal written reply from Novel management to assess my options further. Regards Dean
Dinner - we asked for a table near window cos it was empty and was told it's reserved. No one came to the empty table the whole night. Very slow service and waited long to order and food to arrive. However dinner was delicious and the lady who waitered for us was friendly and kept apologising for the delay. Breakfast - first waiter showed us the way and made us sit in a table near the window. While we were eating another waiter came and asked us to move cos apparently the table we were sitting is only allowed for couples. I was there with my husband and our 4 year old son. I was truly upset by it but I moved cos I didn't want to argue in front of my son. Food was good and had a good selection. The second waiter (Jade was her name I think) was extremely rude and the place was half empty and there was no reason why she couldn't just let us be in the table we were at first. Food and location were great but it was a let down for us by poor customer service.
An enjoyable breakfast, great omelettes.
Overall the whole experience was sublime. The quality of food was to perfection with not a single person who attended have anything negative to say about their meals. The service was excellent, they always ensured we had drinks and were prompt getting those back to us. Overall the atmosphere was very comfortable. Would definitely return here again some time.
Menu very restrictive and my lunch was very bland.
Fresh tasty calamari, tender chicken, and fresh delicious vegetables with both meals
Staff made it a very enjoyable experience
A very pleasant light meal - shared tapas between four of us after partaking of great value drinks at happy hour. Served by Tamara(I think) who was very helpful. Would definitely go here again.
I thought the food was very limited for a buffet. I would have thought there should have been more variety for $35.00. Why put butter out if you are not going to have rolls? Started at 11 so though eggs, bacon, etc would be the go. The staff were great.
Good presentation of the food
Quiet night Did say it was our anniversary as we were asked when booking but no recognition
We found the service to be a very pleasant surprise, personal, friendly and very attentive without being overly so. The food was very enjoyable and our complimentary drink to celebrate our special occasion was very much appreciated and not expected. Thank you. Dan
Website said have seafood, but I haven't found it.
great food, good value
Staff are lovely
Disappointing ! Service was way below par ... the restaurant was less than a third full and yet we waited some 15 mins before we had to get the attention of staff just to order coffee! Plates were not cleared .... Some of the food in the buffet had been left out way too long & was dried out and tasteless. Luckily the location and view saved
Excellent dinner with family. Friendly service. Good range of meal choices. All of our meals were of excellent quality and quantity. Well done.
Excellent service staff are extremely efficient and friendly great selection of wines to compliment the meal Well Done We will Return
Seafood was over cooked. The rest of our experience was lovely.
The food was good but considering there weren't many people in the restaurant and we had made a booking, it was hard to get service to our table. Food did come out promptly once ordered. Only thing is that was a bit annoying was that I had phoned previously about if our Accor member cards would get us a discount, and was told yes, but when it came time to pay they said that they no longer do this any more. (They only then discounted one of the meals for us but this was still disappointing)
The food was excellent as always.
Wonderful Meal. One of the beast seafood dishes I have eaten. First time using Accor membership
