I attended a Dinner Dance here on Saturday and have to say the food was amazing. Everything cooked & prepared so well and all tasted amazing. Staff are very helpful & friendly and nothing is overlooked. There was a drinks reception in the cocktail bar upstairs beforehand and is so warm & inviting.

Stopped for lunch at the Step House Hotel recently. The bar area was packed with customers, a good sign, although our waitress immediately cleared a table for two. Lunch itself was excellent, restaurant standard food that was a far cry from the type of lunch often found in hotels, and coupled with great service and attention to detail, made for...

This place is a bit odd. We decided to stay here at the last minute based on location and food reviews. When we called for reservations, the guy that answered said the reservation person was away from her desk and he could have her call us or we could call back. Before I could dig out the number for my...
