The hotel certainly seems grand once you enter and you will think you are in for a treat. Check-in at reception was hassle free and prompt which added to the good vibes. Unfortunately, the rest of the stay rarely meets the standards set by the first impression. Make no mistake, this isn't a bad hotel by any means - it does the basics well, it just seemed to fall short on the little bit extra needed to make me class this as a memorable stay.
- Quick check-in and check-out
- Locality to restaurants etc within short walking distance
- Reasonable level of service
- Room service menu was extensive and food was delivered extremely fast.
- Concierge took about 30mins to send up my bag after check-in, and this was only after I called to remind them
- Bathroom is straight from a 1970's time capsule; showerhead is fixed to the wall and works great if you are under 5"6, otherwise you have to duck underneath. Also, bottle opener and corkscrew nailed to the bathroom wall? (granted, for those favouring a retro experience, this is a positive)
- A but more diligence from housekeeping would have been appreciated. It was clear the vacuuming was not extensive and some towels provided were stained.
