There are many reasons why our staff is excellent. We recruit the best candidates, train them well and continuously motivate them by way of staff recognition programmes and recreational activities to give them a respite from their week of hard work. The favourite recreational activities are dominoes and a game of cricket – which is played mostly on Sundays where departments vie for bragging rights. Invariably it’s a game of spills and thrills and great laughter enjoyed by guests and staff alike.

Kendol is our most entertaining bartender. He can balance drinks on his head and spin a tray on his finger while doing the limbo. Well cross-trained he also serves most of the special private dinners.
Kevin is not only a fantastic server, he is one of the most hilarious characters in the dining room, loves to engage the guests and has a great sense of humour. Will sing on talent night or just when the feeling gets him. Doesn’t mind being ragged about his lack of cricketing skills – a game he loves to play.
