"Excellent, friendly, polite, experienced staff. Excellent customer service. Excellent Dining facilities and restaurant staff. Excellent menu and drinks choices! Beautiful Gatsby Ballroom, where our event consisting of 340 people were sat, tables were adorned with best glasses and plate ware. I can't say much more than 11 out of 10."
