Just back from this hotel. The hotel itself is stunning if not a wee bit stuffy. It could with a bit more contemporary decor but this is my opinion and not a criticism of the room itself. The service was excellent and the food in the restaurant was outstanding.
For me, where the experience fell down was that we stayed in a courtyard room which was basic to say the least. Decor was clinical. The rooms were very clean and functional. TV did not have all channels in the hotel guide. Visitors guide was in a ring binder where everything fell out when I opened it up! Breakfast was delivered to the room which was very nice but would have been nice to have a choice of ketchup or brown sauce and perhaps some salt in the salt pot! Or am I just being picky?
I got a great deal from laterooms.com - paying less than 50% for DB+B. Had I paid the full rate, I would have been very disappointed.
So, in terms of recommending someone to this hotel, it would be a thumbs up, but I would make them aware of the courtyard rooms and what they would get for their money.
Bottom line - very good, friendly, clean hotel. Food and Service Excellent but perhaps a wee bit pricey if you're stuck in a basic Courtyard room.
