We went here for the buffet meal, as we were staying at the hotel for one night prior to an early morning flight. There was an excellent selection of starters, mains and desserts and a good wine list. A pleasant way to enjoy the evening before flying the next day. The staff were friendly and it seemed to be very... More

Absolute rip off. Came in to dine at 10.20pm. We're not told they were closing at 10.30. We were seated, ordered a wine and a Diet Coke. We were then told we needed to to hurry up and eat (buffet) because they closed at 10.30 ! As I put soup in a bowl they were clearing away the salad bar... More

Have just visited the buffet in the Garden Restaurant. Very poor selection of food available & not very appetising. Tried to add £7.50 service charge for bringing our drinks! (buffet is self service) which I had removed. Paid £60 for 2 of us which was almost the price of the room! Save your money and take a little walk to... More

The buffet was ok but 12.5% service charge - for what exactly?? It's a self service buffet. Not impressed and wouldn't recommend.

Buffet on offer here in the evening was really good, a 3 course affair which enabled us to get the children fed in a reasonable amount of time with things they would actually eat. Opens at 6pm. A bit expensive for what it is but I guess its airport prices.

Perfect option for those travelling. Food was good and there was plenty of choice. A bit pricey but they have a captive customer base I guess.

Food was included with my conference so I can't comment on price/value, but the quality was good. There were a couple of hundred of us and they dealt with the volume very well. Each meal had plenty of choices and you had plenty to eat at each sitting. The fried ravioli was odd, but yummy.

Evening meal was relatively pricey and we had to question ourselves why we wanted a 3 course meal the night before when we were going to have a cooked breakfast in the morning

On entering the Garden restaurant bar area it was noisy with children running around and loud music. The restaurant did not open until around 6.30. I didn't want to go into any other eateries in the hotel; one looked expensive and the other one was fast food which I didn't WANT.
