I stayed here for the weekend for a Mother's day treat. The refurbishment and furnishings are impressive with relaxing colours and innovative flower arrangements everywhere.
Security is strict yes, but as explained to maintain the exclusivity and to keep track of where everyone is for health and safety reasons as it's easy to get lost and some parts are still
under construction. They will also be launching their own range of building tours in the future. The spa is beautiful and private, with a small pool that is busy in the late afternoons.
Yes staff are still in training, with small issues like serviettes being needed for self service in the club and side plates for toast at breakfast. Otherwise staff are exceptionally attentive and polite and made the stay a real treat for my mother.
Watch out for the website when booking as prices are without VAT. It's expensive and in line with Savoy prices but I would go back tomorrow just for the buzz of the place and architectural joys. My room was on the Third floor too. I'm not particular about a view and this was the quietest hotel room that I've ever stayed in. At 5 foot two the bath is a bit of a challenge getting in and out of and more water pressure is required from the shower but no complaints otherwise.
