Had a group dinner and the service was weak. Parts of the room got meals promptly while others had to wait and wait. Requests for tea or coffer went unattended. Not good!

My husband and I don't normally do buffets, but this was by far the best! There were so many options and the area was very clean. This was one of the best breakfast meals we've ever had. Our server was nice and attentive. The poached eggs, oatmeal, fresh fruit and lattes were great.

The Poppy Brasserie offered us a highly populated but amazing buffet style breakfast.both hot and cold food was lovely,so much variety. We could have as much as we wanted including drink refills. Fruit was really fresh and the service was brilliant.

We had breakfast here for 10 consecutive mornings during our stay. The tables have a nice view, and it is a great relaxed atmosphere. Although we had the buffet breakfast, the service was still excellent, with coffee and juices always topped up and plates and cutlery replaced quickly between buffet trips. The buffet items were of a great quality and... More
