I recently stayed at this grand old hotel whilst attending a conference in the city.
From the moment I arrived I was greeted like a returning friend (although I had never stepped foot in this hotel before). I was met by the concierge (Bernard), he was able to answer my questions on directions and also recommended some restaurants to dine in. I was checked in by Sadie on reception. My room was a standard room although I wouldn't have said there was anything standard in the room. Large, a lovely view, modern TV (a smart tv with the internet and apps on), great bathroom and a safe in the room (more about that later).
I didn't dine in the hotel but did go onto the lounge in the early evening, I was served promptly by a member of staff (sorry no name badge), the drinks were averagely priced for a venue of this standard.
On checking out I used the express check out due to a queue in front of me. again the concierge (David Morris?) were helpful in getting me a taxi to the station.
On returning home, I discovered I had left my house keys in the safe in my room (luckily my neighbour has a spare key). I contacted the hotel and spoke with Adam in the Security/Lost Property department. He was able to retrieve my keys and he very kindly arranged to have them sent to me arriving the following day.
Overall I highly recommend this hotel, the building is amazing, the staff are friendly and will do anything to help. I have not found a hotel in a long time where the staff have been so friendly and willing to help with any requests.
