Meals served at this business conference centre were consistently good. Interesting salads particularly at lunch; a hearty breakfast (better on the first day than the second) and dinner meals that would be acceptable at a city restaurant. Very good at meeting special dietary requirements.

Food was well cooked and well presented, perhaps a little expensive but you expect that in a motel restaurant. Wasn't very well heated but they produced a blow heater to keep us warm. Service very slow given there was only one other couple there.More
