Since the client was paying, the automatic Mole Option of the Shangri-la was not on the table. But when we arrived at the Gran Melia, it seemed like a 'reasonable' alternative. Haven't been there before and My Goodness Me was I pleasantly surprised. 'Grand and Stately' sums it all up nicely from the spacious Foyer to the Grand Staircase. Pleasant and efficient staff, splendidly sized rooms, well stocked with all the amenities for the business traveller to rescue and take home as presents. Coffee shop was excellent and the Italian restaurant is well worth a visit - provided you check in the title deeds of your castle before you look at the wine list! The lounge area is cosmopolitan and fresh BUT, Dear Ones, check the prices before having more than one drink!
Room rates (mine was US$169++) are, however, VERY reasonable and excellent Value for Money. Breakfast was included - and a jolly good breakfast it was too. Not many make it into Mole's Grand Old Lady class - but the Gran Melia simply ROMPED home!!
