We were staying at the Holiday Inn and found the meals were great. Lovely spot for breakfast - buffet to select from and every day it was perfect. Evening meals were also great.

The location up high, overlooking the Lagoon is great. If really hot, there is an Air conditioned areas as well if required. The upper entry area has a great bar area as... More

We had breakfast as part of our deal. The food was fresh and the omelette station was a plus. Staff more than willing to assist. We did have an issue with dinner but that was rectified and was due to miscommunication.

I recently dined at Verandah while I was staying at the Holiday Inn. They have an excellent breakfast selection and the best scrambled egg and omelette I have had in a long time. They accept customers not staying at the hotel. Great view overlooking the lagoon.

I ate here while a guest at the Holiday Inn Resort, and also had some friends over, from time to time. Restaurant offers a good, basic menu, and the food was always tasty (but not spectacular, and costly). It would be nice to see a greater variety of "small plates" and also a much wider selection of "holiday cocktails" that... More

From our house on the hill, we've been watching the post-cyclone reconstruction of the Holiday Inn with interest ... so with its reopening this week we thought we'd give the restaurant a test run. The entrance hall has been beautifully restored and its great to see this grand old lady (aka Le Meridien) looking so good. The restaurant itself is... More

Friendly helpful staff. Lovely food. Fantastic Views. Really does it get any better? I was going to wax lyrical about this place but I feel the first line covers it off pretty darn well.
