Possibly we had our hopes up booking a Superior room in this hotel but it was a bit disappointing. There are so many wonderful features to this hotel. The location could not be better. The dinner at Pembroke Restaurant was amazing. The Aveda Spa was wonderful... for 3 consecutive days (massages, vitality suite). The room was where we had issues. The toilet made a LOUD roaring sound for at least 2 minutes when you flushed it. Our wake-up call came 20 minutes late with an apology that the phones were down (did they not think to send someone up to knock on our door?). There was an issue with the phones that your could not make international calls.
I would recommend staying nearby for the location and make sure to have a dinner at the Pembroke Restaurant. Book appointments at the great Spa... but honestly I do not think I would stay at this hotel again.
It really is a shame that they have so many really great features and can still be so disappointing!!
