My arrival was quite late, and I got the impression the place operated more as a bar/bistro than a hotel when no-one was at the reception, and someone appeared more by surprise on seeing me. The reception area is poorly arranged, but the reception staff when they popped up, were always pleasant and helpful. My room was cramped. It had a vast bed which could have been fun if I'd been here on a romantic adventure, but a vast bed shoe-horned into a cramped room didn't make for a comfortable overnight stay. The plumbing was a problem, with warm water coming out of the cold tap and the next morning the shower mixer taps didn't work. I guess it's always better to arrive early enough to change rooms if needed. Being on my own, I chose not to use the public areas having found the general areas of the hotel stark, dark and gloomy - with a lift (when you found it) reminiscent of a travelling coffin. Calling my room after an expensive champagne didn't make me feel better when the room rate was so high, so I was relieved to leave the following morning - despite having had a good breakfast (and well served) in the creaky-floored dining room with overhead fans that reminded me (with a pleasant nostalgia) of India. Well placed for the centre of town, but with an overinflated opinion of itself.
