Amazing hotel with vast array of amenities including 5 restaurants. Breakfast and the buffet were brilliant. Service to match, nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely return.

The only thing wrong with this hotel is its dark and gloomy interior with heavy dated furniture. This is meant to reflect its old colonial history - and it does - to my mind it’s overdone. An exception is the glorious light and beautiful indoor swimming pool. The staff are lovely and the food good, especially in the Thai Grand restaurant where it is outstanding. However, the ritual high tea which is famous is rather disappointing.

It’s a beautiful old world hotel with character. The rooms are dated and the insulation between rooms is poor , you here sound and bathroom water sounds from the room next door and above. Service in the restaurants can be more attentive.
