I had high hopes of Lisson Grove and was sadly dissapointed. We stayed in the irish themed room for a romantic night away from my baby for the first time. I have to admit - the room did look a little kitsch on the website but on arrival we found that it was awfully tacky - with peeling wallpaper, ancient furniture and bed and rusty window fittings. Even the kitchen was old and the kitchen wear was crappy too. This would be OK if you weren't paying $325 for the night, for which I expect a lot better.
The spa bath is nice and big but when we filled it the water was brown. I wished I had brought my own toiletries when we found only cheap motel-like soap and just one tiny bottle of shampoo and bath salts.
Then there's the breakfast - which was a platter of bacon and eggs etc. I was told over the phone that we'd receive hot bread and fresh juice to the room - we did get hot bread but the juice was a caraffe filled with long life juice - not fresh in my opinion and not something that I'd consider '5 star'.
I was told on booking that the room was 'really nice' - I'd disagree with this, nice is the last word that I'd use to describe it.
There was an open fireplace which was nice, however this is the only source of heating and it was not really emitting enough heat to reach the bedroom. When we woke up in the morning the fire was out and the whole cottage was freezing - its really cold up on the mountain and a heater would have been nice.
All in all I left there wishing I hadn't wasted $325 on this place as the price tag definitely did not match the room.
