We booked to stay here for a special occasion, so opted for one of their more expensive business class rooms. We were excited to learn our room was on the highest floor of the hotel. The views were amazing but the positives stopped there. The room was so so dusty, and the bedding was dirty! I turned a pillow over and the case hadn't been put on properly so revealed horrible yello stains. Not nice! There were also many things missing such as robes etc. that should have been included in the rate we paid. We rang reception and asked to be moved, explaining why. They delt with this promptly, but there was no apology (which I would expect for the price we were paying!) we found some staff to be quite rude eg. At check in and breakfast. The cleaners and staff at check out were very friendly and polite. The room we were moved to was an improvement, and seemed to be an actual business class room as opposed to a normal room with a nespresso coffee machine added to it so they could charge business rates! The new room was cleaner (still not perfect) and much bigger with better quality furniture. Breakfast was good in terms of food choice, but staff were obviously stressed by the amount of people and showed this-not the best customer service-we didn't mind waiting it was just the negative attitude rather than being cheery on a Sunday morning that wasn't great! Won't be staying there again!
