Whenever I go to a 5* hotel, I expect to find a property that blows me away. Whilst there's nothing wrong with the property itself, it lacked the wow factor. I'm sure I would probably get a different feeling in the summer. The room is small and the layout doesn't make it feel spacious. The bathroom is not exactly as... More

Having been gifted an afternoon tea voucher for this hotel, I had great expectations of this hotel. The area utilised is not one I could recommend when tables are placed around a stairwell. A classy looking venue with excellent attentive staff. Having had high tea in the Balmoral and Caledonian (Waldorf) I thought they both have very comfortable settings. Suggest... More
