I stayed at this fine Hotel a few years back but they have recently had a refurb and its very different now.
The lobby Lounge is very striking as soon as you see it with high ceilings and the tall bar with a range of displays.
We treated ourselves to some delicious scones but i see the same Teapots are being used the ones that spill tea all over the place.
So we got our keys from a sweet girl (Rachel) who directed to the lifts and went through all hotel Amenities.
The rooms are modernised with nice tv but the strong smell of air freshner would choke you as im an Asthmatic other then that .
We ate in the fine dining restaurant where we were greeted by a nice professional young man brought us to our table and offered us our menu's and a wine list.
I ordered the 10 oz steak well/done but when it came out itwas poor quality as i have eaten many of steaks and wrote reviews for food colums before the steak was so small and the presentation was def not michelan star.
We made our way to the hotel bar which i have to say was our best experience a friendly barman (ken) who made me a lovely cosmopolitan or 2 he spoke with us and made us feel very welcome.
Overall a nice stay will try again soon but will prob eat out next time
