Good food and the staff were generally very friendly and efficient. Could do with a few more vegetarian options. Food is plentiful and the chocolate waterfall is amazing.

We had a buffet dinner and also breakfasts here. Good choice of food though sometimes difficult to find some items and staff didn't know where it was or even if it was provided. A bit more staff training required. Otherwise a very good experience.

If you like hot coffee, you can buy it next door at the bar but no proper coffee at the buffet. Poor attitude if staff Disappointing

On previous visits I have found the buffet middling value for money - that has greatly improved with a wider variety of food styles available.

We eat here for breakfast daily and loved the array of choices available. Then had dinner here tonight and it was amazing. Being a buffet style we were able to try a bit if everything which was all good. Highly recommend this place

The only downside to this place was not being able to sit at a table as high stalls or in the lobby were all that was on offer. Food was terrific and especially the cheese board.

Great food. Great Staff. We ate breakfast and dinner in the Ilkari Restaurant - staff very professional. Good variety of good and a chef to cook the main meal - e.g. style of eggs at breakfast & steak or stir fry etc at dinner

We booked on arrival the same day so I am unsure but know the reception would be pleased to assist.
I would like to know what time this restaurant opens for dinner and how much their buffet is? Thanks!
