I spent 3 nights at this hotel, 2 in a room in the older South Wing and 1 night in the new North Wing. The rooms in the South Wing are fine, pretty comfortable and well-equipped but don't compare with the rooms in the North Wing which are fantastic, larger and more modern. The bathrooms in the North Wing rooms are huge as well. One touch I appreciated in both rooms was the row of different types of sockets provided in which you can charge or plug in any sort of plug imaginable. This is a nice touch and the first such feature I've seen in any hotel I've stayed in.
The hotel itself is clean, plush and well-presented and the staff are just lovely. The food was really good in the two restaurants I tried at the hotel, and the high tea they serve in the lounge is well worth a try. I would definitely stay here again.
