Our stay didn't start well - no-one explained in advance that there were 2 check ins and inevitably we went to the wrong one only to be brusquely directed to the other. Reception was slow and understanding made difficult by noisy family parties in the foyer. But the room, when we got there, was delightful. We stayed in the Tower Wing and had access to the club lounge which provided a super terrace for free drinks and snacks each evening and for breakfast. The other public areas appeared very busy and noisy through our stay but we did have one exceptionally good dinner in the 1881 restaurant. The landward area around the hotel isn't particularly attractive.
