MUTARE – Holiday Inn Mutare’s Hotspring Restaurant knows it is under pressure to deliver on its internationally taunted fine dining experience’s promises.
Its guests – often frugal business travelers with high expectations will not necessary thank them just because they did not get food poisoning.
It has to deliver on what its website says is a “wide variety of delectable dishes to suit all the guests’ needs and guarantee a memorable eating experience.”
And it does!
The growing popularity of the restaurant is a direct reflection on the restaurant’s service culture and quality of the food that is perfected by its well-groomed staff’s etiquette.
This restaurant offers full English breakfasts every morning – with freshly squeezed orange juice something they do not compromise on, delicious buffet lunches and dinners with a wide selection of dishes to choose from.
These are particularly convenient for conferencing guests.
For individuals and families, the hotel offers two separate `a la carte menus for the restaurant and for the poolside.
The fine-dining restaurant menu has an average turnaround time of 25 minutes although a few more complex dishes may require up to 30 minutes.
Its impressive poolside menu offers lighter dishes that will take far much less time and offers all-day breakfast – another of the Holiday Inn® brand requirements that are pushing up standards at the restaurant.
Although the hotel is right at the centre of the city it makes the most of its architectural design with the pool’s beautiful restaurant side pool setting offering a relaxing and romantic environment that makes it a sought after spot by couples.
There is nothing vaguely unhealthy on their diverse and imposing long menu list for those who would like the `a la carte and poolside menus.
The restaurant’s Kids Corner takes it eons away from any competitor in the city for families. The restaurant allows up to four kids ages 12 and under eat free any time of the day in this restaurant making it a great place to eat from for families.
This a standard offer in any Holiday Inn® on-site restaurant makes it a true family brand.
To complement the restaurant is a Coffee Shop which is conveniently located in the lobby area. This allows guests to relax and have coffee and pastries whilst discussing business.
