Work put me up at the Charles, and what can I say- it was not pleasant. The attitude of the staff leaves a lot to be desired... The lady at reception was both rude and ineffectual.
The room was nice, but some of the furniture was oversized and stopped you being able to access the wardrobes etc.
The restaurant however was the worst part. I had fish that was clearly not fresh, had practically no flavour and left my stomach a bit yuk afterwards. The wait staff ignored me and took 20 minutes to get my wine when the restaurant was pretty much empty.
For the price you pay, even if it is work paying, I expect better. This could be a great hotel- the refurbishments have made it beuaruful- but the restaurant and service ruined it for me.
