Shared a room with colleague at medical conference,having booked a twin non-smoking room well in advance of event. Given room on 3rd floor, discovered next morning due to smell, we had been given a smoking room. Complained to female receptionist and were eventually offered a smaller rm on 2nd floor with no drawers. Since we were 2 ladies staying for 4 nights requiring more than just hanging rails, we asked could we have a room with drawers and were initially told that none of the rooms had any! We were then offered a double room with a pull out bed and drawers on the 1st floor. Since neither of us wanted to sleep on a pullout bed, particularly for what we were being charged, we declined. We were told by male receptionist that he "didn't have a joiner available to make any!", "we dont have drawers in case you leave something behind" and were then offered an office filing cabinet! We had to live out of our suitcases for the duration of our stay. Tip, if you want a bigger room with drawers book a smoking room or a room on the 1st floor. This is a really beautiful hotel but I think the furniture is certainly more style over function or perhaps catering for 1 night stays only. The breakfast and staff in the restaurant were excellent but due to the rudeness and arrogance of the reception staff, we will not be back.
