Breakfast was fast and good, but dinner was incredible! It far exceeded our expectations for a hotel restaurant! We loved the outdoor lounge with fireplace! They also give you 2 free drink vouchers on arrival - an added plus.

We arrived late and were very tired. The room service arrived promptly and hot. They even remembered the extras that we ordered. The food was prepared just right! Catching the TranzAlpine very early the next morning made us hurried. However, the restaurant staff was extremely...More
