As all the other reviewers have said, the location was incredible. I don't really understand the few negative reviews I've seen of the rooms. The one I stayed in was beautiful and full of amenities. (I did get upgraded to a suite, but I'm certainly not complaining).
One thing that takes getting used to was the point source water heater. It takes a bit getting used to the variable temperature of the water when taking a shower as it varies from when you adjust the temperature. I come from the US where everyone has tanks, so the changing water temperature takes some getting used to. That was the only thing I found odd, but for all I know this is simply unavoidable in the UK.
Having an internet connection is vital for me while traveling, and cell phones just don't cut it, so Wi-Fi at the hotel is essential. The Wi-Fi was free and did happen to work in my room, but they don't really guarantee that it will. In 2013 I feel like we've reached an age where Wi-Fi should be both part of the expected service at a hotel, and free. While it was free, I'm sure it doesn't work in many of the rooms because they tell you it only works in the lobby.
The above is the only reason I'd rate the hotel 4 stars instead of 5.
