Perfect location to unwind your Sunday. 6 star for its atmosphere. It feels like in the colonial days. So nostalgic! However the food selection can be improved. For exquisite boutique hotel like this we expect a little more.

The cold seafood section was unfresh and miserable. Poor selection. Everything was not up to standard . Extremely poor taste for 150 / pax. Will not come here for buffet ever again!

The restaurant is old colonial style, tasteful done and spacious. Service was rapid and efficient. Food perfectly acceptable without being exceptional. The outlook over the river is fine. Well worth a visit just to experience the relaxed atmosphere
