having stayed there in December and in August last year, i really wonder whether one should return to stay there.. yes, the hotel was on of the best - anywhere (we lived there, we put up all our overseas guests from international insitutions, had our workshops there etc.) . but that was some time ago. some of the old/long serving staff members still display that excellent attitude towards guests and service... now it seems to be a money grabbing place, where quality and service do not reflect the charges. slow service - waiting 30 minutes for the change, air con not working, a medium rare e steak becomes a piece of leather, high charges for the so-called business centre etc etc... still, the quickest service was put in place on my last day.. by the time i finished my early breakfast (still worth the money) my room had been cleared by the cleaners already... but i managed to get a towel back....
