Problems with the COORS beer. Staff unable to rectify problem manager came and sorted it. Food wasn't great and wasn't fresh. Half the food dishes hadn't been replenished so little choice. Wouldn't go again

Lots of choice, all you can eat buffet. All the food was hot with a range of cuisines. Great price for the buffet and ice cream factor for dessert. Would definitely do back!
