The special brunch component took our rating up a level due to the addition of the carving station, salad selections and unique themed desserts. The breakfast component of the buffet matched the expectations of a typical breakfast buffet. Food was hot, decent variety, eggs Benedict...More

We only went to Cottages for the buffet meal at night this time around. The prime rib was cold and so was the pasta. The potatoes were good and so were the salads. The desserts could be a bit better.More

The breakfast buffet is very average (and I'm being generous here); the dinner buffet was a drama - quality, variety, presentation of food is below standard. Also the decor is really outdated and the outside terrace lacks atmosphere.
