Never felt compelled to review a hotel before. Staying away with work a lot means hotels tend to blend in to one another...
Myself and my partner stayed in the Taylor's Port suite, which was spotless and very cool (think New York loft meets Barn conversion). The bath and shower in the room were brilliant and made us want to stay in all night.
The feel of the hotel is casual, but plush and the decor is straight out of a coffee table magazine.
I could list a million great things about our stay, but the difference between this hotels and others were the great staff. The lady who greeted us (who seemed to be available whenever we wanted anything) called Eirian provided the most genuine warm welcome I've ever had in a hotel. We had no special requests, or problems to be solved, but somehow we were made to feel like everything would be taken care of for us.
I have only one criticism of the entire stay and that would be for the hotel restaurant... Maybe we chose badly, but I had steak and my girlfriend had lobster, both of which were pretty average! It was a real shame - but wandering back in the room with the rest of the wine certainly made us ambivalent to it all.
All in all - great hotel, great staff. Eirian deserves a raise/bonus whatever can be sent her way in our opinion.
