we too, were in room 56. which offers the most amazing views, the decor IS dated and the bathroom could use some TLC ( and instructions on how to operate the jacuzzi) but the ambience of the hotel was breathtaking. A great lad took us around the hotel, showing us where everything was, we were early and our room was not quite ready. We had coffee in the consrevatory while we waited for firends who where collecting us by boat. 2 coffees cost £8. I checked out the lunch-time menu, sandwiches £13. Thirteen pounds! For a sandwich. I am still in shock. Thank goodness we were here as guests of my husbands company. £13 - for a sandwich!
We ate in the fine dining restaurant, it was quite simply the best food I have ever tasted, Graham the waiter was great, not in the least stuffy. The hotel needs to get him training the rather prim waitresses at breakfast in Ruskins.
The temperature controller of the Hotel also needs to address the oppressive heat, especially at breakfast time, I almost passed out in the middle of my eggs benedict.
I had been disappointed to find my morning cuppa in bed had to rely on UHT milk. When paying these sort of prices ( did I mention 13 quid for a sarni??) the least one expects is fresh milk. We stayed 1 night. The total spend was over 600 pounds ( we did drink champagne) - and that was without a sandwich. The bed was sublime.
