I stayed here since the reception for a wedding of a friend was to be held in the restaurant. Which by the way was an awesome very modern stand up reception with lovely food. The room including the bathroom was quite spacious. I found a couple of things frustrating - firstly the water leaked from out of under the shower and all over the floor, saturating the bath mats. Secondly, and I have to confess I only noticed this because I was putting on make up for the wedding - but my room had only romantic downlights, and wasn't exactly conducive to being able to see what you were doing. It was also only a little noisy in the morning. There was a safe, and slippers, which is always nice. The mini-bar was extensively stocked, if you're into that sort of thing, but be warned - hideously expensive. The hotel is well positioned for any travel into the city, or if you're like me and need access to the botanical gardens. The service is quite good, with attentive staff. I was lucky I got a fairly cheap room for what it would normally be, but it was still the above standard room.
