Food bar service sitting out side in the sun
great breakfast ,location you can not get better just needs a bite of TLC to bring it up to its glory days .I Will stay there again any time
Nothing to like here, service was non existent
Staff ignored us in the restaurant, at check in reception advised kitchen closed at 8.00pm, when we went to the restaurant the staff advised kitchen closed at 7.30, eventually they decided to take our order and our meals were plonked down 10 min later, and from there we were ignored. No one came to ask if the meals were ok (one wasn’t) I didn’t eat the food it was so bad) When I spoke to a staff member, all I heard was excuses about how busy they had been There was 2 other guests in the bar/restaurant when we were there. This property has gone down hill and is badly in need of a refurb and training for their staff. I’ve stayed here quite a few times over the past 10 years and it is so very disappointing to see this lovely property in the state it is in. I got charged 3% for paying with a debit card, feel ripped off.
Room love it penthouse, comfortable and old could do wit bit of a face lift.. and afew ants other then that very happy wit room.. staff were okay probably need abit more training towards menu orders and making sure guess okay and if thy like to to order drinks and desserts as we miss out as time had run out...I have hospitality back ground and certainly needs alot more work on the staff..
Needs improvement on dinner menus..order mussels pork belly and scallops over cooked favors weren't nice...oysters not impressed on good note .breakfast was nice poached eggs, mushrooms was ok. Also had fruit and yogurt was ok..
It was in close proximity to the Naval activities.
* You hotel was one of the discounted Hotel on the Navy list. It also stated that breakfast was include in the discounted cost. It certainly wasn’t as I ended paying $17.00 instead!! * A $20.83 surcharge? Please explain!
