Having just returned from spending New year at this hotel I feel I must write this review, How disappointed we were with our stay.
The hotel did not live up to its four star rating or the pictures on the web site.
We booked a junior suite room 112, big mistake it was dull,cold,linen old and grey as was the towels in the bathroom. Also we were above the bar so the noise at night was very loud.
Also it was a shock that there was no toiletries in the bathroom we had to buy soap.
I have to say the staff at breakfast time were helpful and food was ok but you would expect nothing else in a four star hotel.
The bar area is a sad and dull place my husband and I found ourselves on new year's eve in the bar with one other couple, a fed up barman, no music or festive cheer even the Christmas tree lights were not on and this was at 11pm. Thankfully there was UK TV in the room so we just took in new year in the room!!!
There was a gala dinner on for guests in an other room but we thought that at the very least some sort of music would be on for other guests.
we would not return to this hotel which is a pity as it is in a great spot.
