We ate at the ‘Vapor Restaurant’ in this busy hotel the night before a flight. The food was very good, there was a reasonable wine list and the service was excellent. Friendly, well trained, happy staff who knew their job and were enjoying themselves too.

Probably one of the few hotel restaurants I've actually eaten in. Usually you'd go out. But nice food and good value for money. Friendly staff too. Check out the photos. Good wine list too.

We ate here for lunch & dinner as our flight was delayed ten hours and the airline put us up here for free and paid for our meals as well. The lunch buffet was ok but the dinner buffet was spot on.

Had the buffet one night. I believe it starts at 6, I arrived at 615.  Unfortunately, while the food tastes reasonably good and there was a decent variety, it was all cool to lukewarm at best. I mean everything.  You would expect it to be hot so early into service. When I paid for my meal, which wasn't cheap -... More

Book in for Dinner as we were staying at the Holiday Airport Inn and we were not disappointed. Prompt friendly service and the BEST calamari I have had ever. My husbands lamb salad was also excellent.

A great buffet breakfast was included in our night's stay. Something for everyone on offer. Didn't try the coffee, so can't comment on that. Typical help yourself service on a busy Saturday morning. Friendly staff.

Average in terms of service - slow to clear plates away. Limited interaction with the customer.The barista coffees were only just warm which was disappointing on two occasions out of 3. Very average in terms of food quality and choice.

I was pleasantly surprised how reasonable priced & how good the food was for a restaurant @ a hotel. It only cost $70 for my family of four, as kids eat for free. Good variety of kids menu. chicken fettuccine was amazing. My husband had the buffet & he was happy. It had Relaxed atmosphere.

The buffet breakfast really was delicious. The food was fresh and beautifully laid out. A little pricey for me but still normal for this type of buffet. This was on the company so I probably wouldn't lay that much money out for the family just for breakfast.

Bit Disappointing as nothing over impressive. Quite pricey. Did enjoy the cheese and crackers afterwards with the sliced fruit which I wouldn't have had with a meal off the menu
