Stayed at the hotel on a recent business trip and arrived to find I'd been given a beautiful room, but was very cold as the radiators didn't work, and the bathroom was practically freezing. Having reported the problem, the staff were very helpful and provided me with a small fan heater, which helped to an extent but couldn't have heated the room properly even if I'd left it on all day. Given the time of year and the relatively high price of the rooms, I would have expected better and perhaps to have been moved to a warmer room.
The food was also relatively average, although I do have to add that the staff were yet again very pleasant and helpful.
So on the whole, felt my stay was quite average and had expected a lot more.
