Positives: We booked the two bedroom Rose suite for a birthday treat. Located on floor R at the top of the hotel, it offers fantastic views of the wharf and river.
The suite itself was tastefully decorated and huge. We had asked for balloons and champagne which were set up bu concierge and were great.
Bathrooms have hot powerful showers and great luxury products. Dressing gowns a little worse for wear but perfectly clean. Slippers provided too.
All staff we encountered were generally friendly and accommodating. The young gentleman who works at reception was particularly warm and profession and deserves a special mention. So does the young girl who works as the waitress, she did everything she could to provide us with a gluten free meal.
Room service was quick and bugers tasty.
Room for improvement:
TV in one of the bedrooms didn't work.
The green emergency lights in the bedrooms are very bright and it took me a while to get to sleep. I have never known such bright lights before which can't be dimmed.
The mood lighting didn't seem to work. Many buttons but could only have super bright or off.
I'd like to end the review by giving a special mention to the masseuses in the SPA. We had the best holistic massage and facial I've experienced. Pure heaven, very relaxing, friendly and well worth the cost. The SPA itself has great facilities, steam room, sauna, dry room and large hydrotherapy pool.
We would return to the SPA for definite.
