I found the hotel to be tired and the staff disinterested. The room we had on a non smoking floor was large, comfortable and clean. I don't like showers in the bath - I think that a 5* hotel should give you a choice between a room with a bath or a shower. We had dinner in the Explorers Bar as the main restaurant was not open - BIG mistake! Our waiter was drunk (he smelled so strongly of alcohol and was unable to write down our orders). The food was terrible. The breakfast saved the day, it was outstanding and the staff were very good.
