This is probably best value for money I have experienced in fine dining around the world. The setting is one of a kind - early 20 century British colonial- well maintained but not having lost its character. The food - we had 7 course tasting...More

Had an amazing french-inspired dinner here while staying at the hotel. The Grand dining room is reminiscent of the old wood paneled rooms of old. We were in a group of 30 and had impeccable service and wines with our fine meal.

No. You would not be over-dressed at all, in fact I don't think one can over-dress for this restaurant. I wore jeans with a button down long sleeved shirt, and combed my hair.

Yes, I believe it is rated four star - it is a lovely but very old hotel 100plus years. So, expect some graceful aging. The service is exceptional and the rooms are lovely with fantastic views. It reminded us of some of... More
