We stayed at The May Fair here for one night on 29th September 2012.
I'll keep it brief and to the point. For a 5 star hotel we expected just that little bit more.
The room was quiet
The bed was comfy
The shower powerful
The location was excellent
Not so good (but not the end of the world):
Check-in and check-out were both on the slow side.
The lifts were slow and large queues formed on each floor.
A nice idea of hiding the TV in the wardrobe was spoiled that you couldn't open the adjacent wardrobes so the TV had be moved back in regularly - not very practical!
The TV remote looked like somebody's dog had been at it (room 623).
The phone in the room was broken.
No pool! I took it as a given that 5 Star hotels had pools - needn't have packed my swimmers..
For us, the deal breaker was the lack of a residents bar. The bar in the hotel is a disco bar with a DJ and queues to get a drink - not the place to unwind after dinner; in fact it just put a bit of a downer on our evening as we were looking forward to unwinding.
Synopsis - Not really a 5 Star hotel, the little things just took the edge off. We won't stay there again.
