We were staying in the hotel, and dined in Marbles Buffet both nights. We both absolutely loved it! Modern decor. Beautiful food. Huge selection - changed a bit in each section each night. We will be back to the hotel again, and we will be back to Marbles Buffet again. And, again. Loved it!

Better than i would have expected, If you want something as a couple then do not go here as there seems to be more children than adults, Otherwise the food was good and it was clean.

This restaurant is within a hotel complex. We were greeted by a welcoming lady who showed us our table and then took us into the restaurant area and showed us where to find various food styles, deserts and coffee. There was a comprehensive selection of hot foods fro meats to fish prepared in a number of ways. There were cold... More

They could improve the buffet by having less dishes and keeping them full. No cut roast meats or ham when we went up, and no one to ask. Very busy night with lots of kids

Thanks for joining us, and for your feedback. Yes, we offer a huge selection of dishes that are continually replenished with freshly cooked treats. The roast our chefs are carving change each night, as do many of the dishes in all sections of our buffet. We hope to see you back soon. Many thanks and regards, Peter Tennent More

We went to the Marbles Buffet for dinner last night and were very impressed both with the fresh new decor and the range of lovely fresh food. Anyone would be happy with the range of dishes here and extremely impressed with the desserts, especially the fig pie. Very happy to come back again as soon as we can.

this was a very extensive buffet with not only nicely presented food but very tasty, there was an extensive selection of fish dishes, the marinated fish was excellent, and a great selection of desserts that did not taste as though they were mass produced out of a packet, well done

We recently went to Marbles with friends. We had previously been there on many occasions with family and while, on those occasions, I thought the food was average, we went there more for the convenience of having small kids that are happy to choose whatever they want to eat. Our most recent visit was a lovely experience. I felt that... More
