My expectations for this hotel were very high, perhaps too high. Don't get me wrong the hotel is really nice, very posh. Our room on the fifth floor was nice but not the largest and nothing out of the ordinary in terms of furnishings etc. I really liked the turn down service at night where we got a weather forecast for the next day and a lip balm. The bathroom was very nice with underfloor heating and a huge bath!! Breakfast was okay but we had to wait 15minutes one morning just to get toast!
We used the spa which is visually very nice and we enjoyed an afternoon here. The bar lounge at night was very nice.
The downside is the parking, I think £20 a night when you are already paying for an expensive hotel is too much and I really think they should let you park your car there for the day you check out (instead of charging you more) The hotel park your car for you and bring it back for when you leave. Unfortunately I didn't check my car and it wasn't until the following morning I noticed a very large scuff on the front bumper!!
