Stayed overnight to celebrate my patner's 40th. At recenption they tried to sell me an upgrade for £90 (from a junior to a Belgrave suite) and when i declined just gave me the upgrade anyway. Trying to sell it to me first felt vaguely dishonest.
The room was a major disappointment. Poor quality fabrics,including bed linen, real lack of atmosphere or feeling of quality. Poor TV. And all for £530 for one night, B&B, and that was s discounted rate!
The food at dinner was good, not great. Service was not good. The waiter brought the wrong dish,. It was then replaced when we had already finished our dinner, and they suggested boxing it up for us to take away! The restaurant manager then did remove the dish from the bill.
Breakfast the following morning was good.
Overall, I really felt cheated. This was meant to be a real luxury treat, and it wasn't.
