Having enjoyed meals at Athlestane House we finally got ourselves organised for a two night mid week stay. Why have we not done this sooner ? Check in was easy and efficient. Lovely balcony room looking onto Hobson Street. Balcony area had a small table and chairs and two lounges. Perfect for afternoon drinks and catching up on some relaxing reading. We decided to have dinner at the hotel restaurant. As it was a nice balmy evening we chose the lovely courtyard. A delightful setting with a grapevine covered pergola and festive lighting giving a pleasant ambience. Please see our attached photo.
Our meal was excellent. We shared the spiced calamari and the ricotta stuffed zuchini flowers for entree. Main course was the twice cooked pork belly and ricotta & parmesan dumplings. I am wary of food that is cooked more than once but in this case the pork belly was excellent. Nicely cooked, moist with crunchy crackling. Bliss ! My partner very much enjoyed the dumplings.
For dessert we had the chef's cassata special. Not served in the traditional wedge style but excellent flavour.
All enjoyed with a rose wine.
All staff are bright and helpful. A comprehensive breakfast is also included in the tariff.
Midday check out time is very much appreciated.
