The room was much smaller than we thought it would be. The picture window was great, the view amazing but it could have done with a voile as well as the heavy curtain as we could then have had a little privacy but still been able to enjoy the view.
The shower looked fantastic but the water pressure was poor so not the rainfall anticipated on entering.
The toilet paper was definitely not a "luxury" brand which was a shame
There was nowhere to hang towels other than in the shower
The roof terrace was not open on the first night but it was for the second and we enjoyed the sunset but the third night we were told that we had to leave the roof at 5 (sunset at 5.40) as they were short of staff. other guests complained that they did not even know that the terrace had been opened,- a notice in the lift would have been all it took.
The computer in our room did not have up to date software so we were unable to watch iplayer when we asked them to install it they said it could only be done on Monday when their IT specialist came in. Perhaps the IT specialist could ensure that software is up to date before the weekend.
