The staff in the Brasserie and in the hotel in general are amazingly nice and it is such a shame that the food is inedible. This was one of the worst meals I have ever had. I will not be going back.

Personally l think it will be too crowded. Unless there offering you a section cordoned off ? Maybe call in and speak to a member of staff to save confusion... Either way Congratulations and enjoy it wherever you end up.
