I found this hotel on Trip Advisor. When away on business on my own i prefer modern hotels. I like fast Wifi, great service, a good restaurant, and high quality well-equipped rooms. I booked a Deluxe room, a deep-tissue massage in the Spa, & valet parking.
From the moment i arrived the whole experience was just incredible. The concierge who met me at the door was a giant of a man, & quite possibly the most polite and helpful man i've ever met. He took my car keys, issued me a ticket, & introduced me to the receptionist. Check-in was quick & easy, again from tremendously polite and helpful staff. I found the room easily, and it was exactly as i'd hoped. Modern, spacious, well-equipped, nice view. A beautiful contemporary bathroom, with marble everywhere & a walk-in shower (i do value a great shower). The TV had a huge choice of channels, & also other features such as iPad mirroring, & music on demand.
I then went to the Spa. Again, brilliant polite helpful staff. The massage was excellent, the facility was great, & i headed to the restaurant suitably chilled.
I was met by the restaurant Manager, a young Dutch 'food-lover'. Service was beyond impeccable, the food was amazing, great wine (which he decanted for me !!), & i was treated to some samples of other things on the menu through the course of the evening, as we discussed the world of food in general. I would go to this restaurant even if i wasn't staying at the hotel ... it stands-up as a great restaurant in it's own right. I really can't praise it, or the staff enough !
