We should all be suspicious of 5 star hotels with such cheap rates. It's not 5 star, though somehow manages to tick all the boxes in an AA inspectors guide. The service and general demeanour/ambience is more 3/4 star.
Not wildly child friendly. We had to have dinner with them on the SPA bar area. The rooms are what you would expect for 3/4 star and pretty lacking in character.
Most disappointing is the attitude of some of the staff, off-hand and disinterested. Not the attentive, and solicitous response you expect in a luxury hotel, more a business like 3/4 star response.
I stood at the bar, for 5 minutes, whilst a waitress with her back to sent text messages on her mobile phone, unaware of my presence, and was positively rude to me when I did try and orde some food.
Breakfast was pretty shambolic, and the buffet presentation poor. Lots of staff running around, but no-one taking care of you.
Will NEVER go back.
