Beautiful room but it was tired and dusty. The bedding was stained & the bathrobes worn,torn & rough. The bathroom had mould & dirt around the shower & a mouldy bathmat. The towel rail was broken And the door handle loose.

I'm not sure that there was anything unique about this hotel but it is certainly very stylish and the food is excellent. I had only one or two comments for improvement. Firstly the size of the towelling robe offered. Mine was suitable only for a child or size 10 or 12 female adult, which I am not. Secondly, there was no magnifying mirror in the bathroom. If I hadn't have thought to bring my own, make up and contact lenses would have been very difficult. One would expect this mirror in an establishment of this calibre. Lastly, a plumber is needed to investigate why part of the shower runs when it has not been turned on. It was quite ghostly and I was glad of the door to shut out the noise of it which could have been disturbing through the night.

Great location, very clean and spacious. Majority of staff appeared young and had not all mastered the decorum and respect that we would expect at a hotel of this status.
