Brunch was good but the dining room is a bit dull and needs a refurbishment. Wait staff was excellent. By contrast, the bar area is very welcoming and having a drink in front of the fireplace is the perfect end to the day. Loved the...More

Usually hotel connected restaurants are questionable, but the food here is really good. We had the daily special trout and the Chilean sea bass. We shared our entrees and the sea bass is the best I have ever had. Will definitely return.
