The hotel is lovely, very grand designs. We arrived late at night and were told we’d been given a free upgrade which was exciting, unfortunately we couldn’t figure out how it was an upgrade when we got to the room! It was twin beds with a view of the noisy street, but didn’t bother to ask to change it.
The food is good quality, although they have 3 different menus however you can’t swap where you have them. The restaurant menu can only be chosen in the restaurant, bar menu in the bar area, room service menu only in the room. Didn’t make it to the restaurant as too expensive so stuck with the bar menu, it was cheaper with large portions (we’d recommend sharing the club sandwich between two). Weirdly the room service menu was much bigger than either of the other two menus, but didn’t want to order from it as the main pull of the hotel is the amazing views from the top. The breakfast buffet was fine, good enough choice and quality. We definitely saw an increase in people in the hotel close to the weekend though, which meant a more manic time getting breakfast as everyone is trying to get to the food and good tables at once.
We thought there was a spa in the hotel, they offer a wide range of treatments but there’s only one treatment room apparently, which was disappointing. The pool looked nice, but was freezing cold
Overall good hotel, great views and great location, would stay again (but ask for a better view from the room!)
