As usual it's the small things. TV remote doesn't work, shower cold, not informed at check-in that it's best to book immediately for certain of their restaurants, breakfast table not set properly so no butter, jam, etc. None of this is very exciting, but when you pay good money for what purports to be one of the best hotels in the world you expect things to be right! Good to experience the history and the colonial atmosphere, but I could have visited for a meal to get that. Wish I had stayed somewhere else.
