The first impression was 'Omg! What's going on in here?!' The restaurant was empty. Then there was no stock (the waiter must've checked if they have some soft drinks we've ordered). But food was generally ok. It was fresh, warm and tasty. Table was cleaned regularly. Staff very friendly. Unfortunately there was no big variety of food for the international buffet. No pasta or mashed potatoes. It's definitely worth to try. The price per person is reasonable and kids under 6 eat for free.

Booked this place online as a buffet restaurant. On arrival we were hardly greeted by friendly staff and were taken downstairs to the restaurant area to be told ‘ the foods been out since 5pm, see if it looks appealing’. The food had now been out for 2 and a half hours and didn’t look appealing but we knew many places were fully booked due to it being the bank holiday weekend, so decided to grin and bare it! The quality of food was poor and dried up. We all ate very little. I still have an image in my head of shredded duck (apparently) swimming in liquid! All food on display looked disgusting. Basically we were paying £15 each to eat the scraps left over from the people staying in hotel. The plates weren’t cleared from our table and so when the kids got some dessert, which there was very little to choose from, I think there were a couple of bowls of jelly and a few plates with dried up cake on, there was no room on the table to eat. We couldn’t wait to leave! This is a hotel trying to make extra money by selling off leftover food, which is very poor quality, which is provided for their guests staying in the hotel.

Lovely food and a wide range of different foods well worth paying for something to eat there even if you don't stay there

The buffet leaflet is very much faulty advertising. I don't think I saw a leaf of salad or anything like that displayed on this leaflet. We dined at 5.30 and the restaurant was reasonably full. Reading the leaflet a international cuisine is expected. It fell short of low expectations. The cottage pie was dry. Meatballs were tasty but there was only rice, not pasta. The vegetable curry didn't look that nice and the beef stew was watery. The jacket potatoes were cut in half so became very dry. There were only 4 chips left and no roasts left and these were not replaced at all during the meal despite other customers asking. The meat - unsure what it actually was - looked both slimey and dry! Pudding seemed to have a nice selection. The creme brulee was very watery, the custard was bland so ruined the cake, the caramel pudding was too salty. The unlimited hot drinks the highlight but even the hot chocolate continued the trend of bland and watery. Only positive was that my 2 year old ate free. Wish we had gone to the takeaway instead!

Probably the worst ever buffet restaurant I have ever been to.
The food was definitely not fresh as the chilli has a skin on it.
The chicken korma was very much tinned and a very strange colour. The poppadoms were probably two days old as they had no crunch and were that old soggy texture.
I can see why now that we were the only ones in there.
The puddings were not much better. The chocolate angel delight was runny. The jelly was so hard you needed a knife to cut it and the strawberry flan was soggy.
The only good this was the coffee machine.
Will we go back? NO NEVER.
Will we recommend it? DEFINITELY NOT.
All I can say is stay away and go to the chinese buffet round the corner.
