About Turquoise Thistle - Hotel Indigo
This was a fabulous venue in a central location with a warm and friendly ambience. Food and service were both excellent! Great value for money!
Excellent location, very freshly decorated in a modern contemporary style which makes it a great choice for dining. Food was nicely cooked and presented. Would return.
