I booked a Deluxe room and paid the resulting premium as it was described on the hotel's website as being larger and had extras such as bathrobes, minibar, 1 King Bed and complimentary newspaper. There were no bathrobes or minibar or complimentary newspaper and the "King Bed" was actually two beds pushed together so inevitably you or your partner ends up sleeping on the join. I complained about the minibar and it appears that the reference to this has now been removed from the website. The room appeared to have been set up for just one guest rahter than two as there was just one coffee cup and one set of towels however we found extra towels in the wardrobe. The heater didn't appear to work either and started blowing cold air out after a few minutes. Also the bathroom had an opaque glass door so that your partner could have a failry clear view of your morning ablutions which lying in bed.
On the upside, the location of the hotel is great and the staff were all very helpfull and the decor is generally very smart and otherwise comfortable.
