I have been privileged to stay at quite a few 5 star hotels thanks to my job, however too often they are high in standards of decor, food and prices but average in warm welcoming service. This hotel should have a very special award for its staff. Whether at reception, the concierge desk, the bar, restaurant or housekeeping all of the staff seem to genuinely enjoy talking with and serving their guests.
My only gripe was the aforementioned wardrobe. I was astonished that in a hotel of this standard that due to the room size and the bed that I could only open one of the doors on my wardrobe.....to be frank it was a bit of a pain. I didn't complain as I literally only slept in my room as I had a packed social calendar but if I return I will be sure to ask for a room where I can open both doors of my wardrobe!
