“Good food, Kind of Formal”
Reviewed 26 May 2013

I wouldn't normally go here but I had a breakfast meeting. The restaurant is in the back of the hotel--which feels formal and stuffy, perfect for a meeting.

The service, coffee and food were all very good.

I had the healthy breakfast wrap with scrambled egg substitute, zucchini, squash, salsa, and baby spinach. It's in their "eat right" menu and only had 290 calories!

“Nice Hotel”
Reviewed 24 May 2013

Very nice hotel in great location for going to restaurants and shopping. It is a bit pricey though. The restaurant does not know how to make french toast. They use foam bread instead of french bread and the results are definitely not the same. French bread makes the best french toast.

“Nice Bright Setting”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

The dining room had a nice pleasant aura to it. There were large glass windows on one side of the restaurant which let in a lot of light and looked out to a natural scence. The staff were very attentive and after the 1st day the waiter remembered what I had ordered to drink the day before.
The french toast breakfast was was delicious and quite filling !

“Superb restaurant hotel”
Reviewed 4 April 2013

The menu is limited, but the quality of the food and the service are exceptional. The starters on the dinner menu could be a meal in themselves.

“Gorgeous food & excellent service”
Reviewed 15 February 2013

I loved the menu, so much choice I could have eaten there all week. It was cold due to wind coming in through the entire hotel ground floor but the service was excellent and the food just gorgeous.
