We were part of a Riviera group but, unlike some who paid the same price, were allocated a cold, sub ground level room which had a view of a hedge bordering the car park. We were given a blanket on the second night and a heater on the third. If you are part of a large group it is galling to find that some of the group have been allocated suites, mountain views, 4th and 5th floor rooms in the main block. We drew the short straw and I made my view known to the manager. They ought to send staff to see how the Taj group treat their guests. We also waited for 10 minutes on the first night for wine glasses. One of our party had already finished her main course. The wine bottle was on the table but staff had to go out of the dining room to find glasses! Very odd hotel.
