Lovely location, nice meal/snack. The terrace was looking a bit tired and very wet in places. It has a beautiful view. it seemed to be a bit short staffed and the those that were there must have been new as they didn't seem to know the layout of the tables which were numbered - there was a lot of wandering around looking for people. There was a couple of staff who knew what was where and they were very helpful guiding the others around. Piccy point staff were coming out with food orders and then going back empty handed walking past tables that had dirty plates and glasses on, this meant that people coming in were having to push them aside and it's not nice having to sit down next to other people's leftovers. Ordered at the bar and the food was ok nice scampi and really nice chips and a very large pizza. The area looked very dirty in places with an open door to an area which looked like a storage area/cleaning room with dustpan and brush outside which hadn't been emptied. Don't like the cheap looking burger outdoor food points which were closed made the area looked cheap and tacky but I expect a necessity when the hotel is busy. We have been to the hotel before and stayed and the rooms were lovely, the staff helpful and friendly and the breakfast was lovely.
