The ambiance is, as expected, very good but menus we had previously chosen became unavailable beforehand and we had to re-choose. One does NOT expect this from a first-class hotel of this calibre. The meal was even then overpriced, especially as there was a preponderance of apples in the so-called fruit "salad" while the mark-up on a bog-standard wine was, frankly, exhorbitant. We could have bought the same wine at our local French Supermarket for appx. £2.00 the bottle whereas they charged almost £20.00! Fair enough, they have to uncork it, serve it and wash the glasses afterwards but this was way OTT!
There was no-one on Reception when we arrived and again no-one there when we left so we could not collect our coats.
We shan't eat there again unless we can help it!
A 50 year re-union dinner was only rescued by meeting up with old colleagues.
