We stayed for only one night prior to heading off to my sister's wedding.
We arrived from the airport bus ( a short walk) Up the steps..hint- there is a lift! and there we were. WOW!
The door was opened for us, the lovely reception staff welcomed us as if royalty and Tony showed us to our room.
It was absolutely gorgeous in every way. I had my son with us and his sofa bed was already made up. (I have lost count of the amount of times i have stayed places and they forget to set up his cot and now bed is unreal- it was a pleasant surprise!)
I can't believe anyone could say this place is not 5 star. I have stayed in Marriot and HIlton 5 star resorts and hotels and this is the best! So refreshing to see decor that doesn't look like it came out of a catelogue and the same as everywhere else. This place has taste and class galore! The room 806 was huge, high ceilings and well furnished- it felt like a suite- a sitting area with a fireplace and art on the walls. I thought i'd won the lottery- talk about value for money!
i will go on! Toiletries were gorgeous, sweets in the room ( my boy was delighted) and a mini bar to die for!
I wished we hadn't booked for the theatre that night as i wanted to hang out in the hotel and the room more!
Next morning we were off to the train station ( took the lift this time!) and we were accross the road from the entrance- could not have been closer. Ignore any review which say otherwise- these are ridiculous- you could not get closer if you slept on the platform.
Perfect- can't wait for an excuse to go back!
