The exterior is very impressive and there is a wonderful, grand interior staircase. The stair carpet on the higher floors needs repairing. My room was large with classic furniture and 2 armchairs. I didn't have a sea view and the room looked out onto an ugly wall. The bed was very comfortable. There were 2 singles pushed together which was fine for me as I was on my own but may not suit everyone. There was no desk lamp, clock, conditioner (only shampoo) or small extendible bathroom mirror. Only 4 milk sachets.
The gym is small but contains usual running machines, cross trainers etc
Breakfast - it was lovely sitting in the enclosed terrace but the food was ordinary. There was fresh fruit but it didn't look in the best condition. There were little pots of jam but only strawberry. Why couldn't there be other flavours too? The bacon was very salty. The pot of tea was excellent.
For an expensive chain of hotels it didn't meet all my expectations
