We had Christmas dinner at the boardwalk hotel. The food was delicious. Staff was friendly. The place is also child friendly.

This was not our intended hotel, as the arranged venue did not meet our expectations. However on visiting albeit for one night only, we were not disappointed. The quality all round met with any five star international hotel.

We walked around and found mainly fast food outlets around a man made lake with fountains. The walkway led you pass the casino. Some outlets were empty. Nothing of any class here

Boardwalk is quite run down, restaurants mostly empty. Local artist area worth a walk through. Go once.

I went in December /Jan 2014-2016. I always enjoy this casino. I find it user friendly and the staff a also very friendly. I always come to this casino when in town as it is one of the few that I really enjoy.

The Boardwalk is both entertaining for adults and kids, with fun and games, plenty of restaurants to choose from. Whether its for a romantic evening for couples or a family night with the kids. Few restaurants with kiddies areas to keep them entertained. Nice cocktail bars for when you just need that girls night.

The staff are really slow and take very long to do payouts as they are slow in calculations. Supervisors seem rather disinterested.
