This is a modern hotel which nevertheless less has a dusty air. The grounds are vast and are used for weddings from which the debris is not always entirely cleared. There are peacocks (good) and pigeons (bad) but there is entertainment to be gained from the periodic bird-scaring cannon to warn them off and the tireless but largely futile attempts by men waving flags to drive them from the outside areas and particularly the pool.
The staff are lovely, the rooms are clean and efficient and very well maintained. There is a wonderful shoe seller (buy as many as you can carry!) and an amazing magician.
The restaurant is good and the staff are assiduous and very welcoming.
Can anything be done about these pigeons, or should it be something to be lived with? What did they do in Trafalgar Square?More
