My wife and I stayed here for a couple of nights for our honeymoon towards the end of February. We booked an Executive room, at a cost of £493.50 for two nights. For us that's is a lot of money, but hey, you only get married once.
Obviously we were hoping for an upgrade, and I did add that it was our honeymoon, when I booked. Apparently, a couple of our friends also mentioned it to the hotel, prior to our arrival.
I visited the hotel, on the night before our stay to hand over our luggage, as we didn't want to carry it around all day. The consierge was very helpful, which is a good start. I went to reception also, to advise them that I wouldn't be arriving until about midnight the following day,they were also very nce, and said that we had a really nice room. Result! I thought, we'd been upgraded to a deluxe room.
When we finally arrived at the hotel, at 00.30, we were shown to our room. We hadn't got the deluxe room I'd hoped for, but a studio suite (Room 508)!!!!! It was fantastic, and there was champagne and chocolate dipped strawberries waiting for us in the room also. The ice, hadn't melted, so they even noted, when our arrival was before adding the champagne.
So, service wise, it was fantastic, but beware of the prices.
Everything in the hotel is VERY expensive. they advertise the wonderful health club and swimming pool, but fail to mention, that it's £30 a day! Breakfast, amazingly not thrown in at that price, is £22! A beer is £5. We can honestly say, that we had a fatastic time there, but just can't afford to ever go back!
