“Not bad at all.”
Reviewed 13 March 2012

Not a bad meal and not over priced either but also nothing really amazing. Nice building though, professional staff running an otherwise decent establishment.

“A great place for happy hour”
Reviewed 7 March 2012

We did not eat here as there was so much choice locally but the food we saw looked good and the menu good also. We did visit twice for happy hour from 4-30 until 6pm when you get 25% off all drinks. Great house chardonnay settlers hill

“Worth the stop to enjoy a great meal...”
Reviewed 13 January 2010

We stopped at the Kingsgate to eat. We decided to treat ourselves to lunch. The options were limited at lunch but very good food.

We spent more than we intended to for lunch, but I have no regrets. Splurge a little and you will enjoy it. The atmosphere is great as this is a more posh older hotel with nice decor.

We did not stay at this hotel.
