We booked a suite in this hotel and were disapointed form start to finish . The girl at reception was friendly but gave us no real help with regards to best lift to use when parking the car or did we get any real help with luggage. There is no valet parking which surely as a so called" leading hotel of the world" could be expected . We have stayed in the Balmoral in the past and were treated like VIPs .This hotel needs to rethink its welcome as just asking questions about where you are from isn't really helpful.
The suite was strange all very dark and manly with small windows . The problems here were the bed , which was very short and my husbands feet were hanging over the edge.There was a high pitched noise coming from the TV while switched off or the air conditioning which went on all night . The cleaning was not up to standard either an empty bottle of champage and a glass were left for 2 days . The bathroom was nice but very narrow with hardly any room between the wall and the bath .This was all very disapointing as we were on our honeymoon and expected much better. We will not be returning. We did explain this on our arrival.
