We booked at the restaurant to entertain family who were staying in the hotel.
The service levels in the hotel are non existent from the time we walked in to ask for our family's room numbers and the receptionist was lounging over the desk through the roof top lounge and then dining, service was never offered or experienced.
We had suggested the hotel as an alternative to Hotel du Vin but it simply is not even in the same universe. On a scale of good, bad or never again, this is a definite never again. A pity because the position and roof top are great.
My family said the rooms were good, the air conditioning was inadequate in the one room and the light switch arrangement is a mess.
