OK dinner great refurbishment of the hotel. Spend all the money on a great refurbishment but no money for new plates ruins the whole feel.Mushroom sauce needs mushrooms in it to call mushroom sauce

How often can the restaurant reservation manager get your booking wrong. It would seem every time! After several attempts to eat here we have received really poor service! Rude and disorganised. Quite simply go elsewhere where you can book ahead and ensure your preferred seating.

We travelled 2 hours to have lunch here. A little disappointing as food was just ok. Not a lot of flavour. Very quick and friendly service though and very family friendly... huge kids playroom. Atmosphere was casual and relaxed so that good.

Had lunch here yesterday, burnt food that should never have been aloud out of kitchen, orders for table of 4 all came separately, then rude staff insisted they were ordered at different times( they weren't) Usually meet monthly for lunch with friends and have done for 20 yrs. Not any more, the only reason this place survives over priced food... More

Christmas Day lunch at the Lower Plenty Hotel was the best we've had at a hotel in a number of years. It was well organised, a delicious meal and GREAT service from all the staff. Thanks to all!

Been a few times now, and have to admit not greatly impressed. Drinks are completely over priced. Food has always been good with the parma or jambala my go to meals. Shark park is great for the wee ones. However some of the staff need a kick up the bottom. Complete attitude and lacking customer service. If was as if... More

We ate here last night, my meal of fish was very ordinary and unappealing, It took ages to get our meal and our fellow diners had already finished. Whilst the surrounds have been updated it still lacks atmosphere. you could not buy just a seniors meal you had to have soup or dessert

All our meals were tasty and prompt, good sized and well priced . Fabulous playground at back of venue which grandson loved. Will definitely go out... More

6 friends met for dinner, and were seated in the freezing cold bistro. Queued for approx 15 minutes to order meals, then another 10-15 to get drinks. Staff passing queues were rude and pushy, yelling out that they were 'coming through'. We asked several staff if the air-conditioning could be adjusted to something more comfortable, and were told by one... More
