Have been going to the Oriental for over 40 years.Sometimes it has been great and sometimes o.k.I agree that some off the renovations are tasteless and that the Authors lounge is very often over-booked.That said my last visit was incredible even by the hotels standards.
I found the Verandah food a notch better.Service all round has improved,if that is possible.A real pleasure to see well groomed dedicated staff taking so much care.Bravo to the management.
The care for detail is impressive.They even book- marked my book while it was lying in the room.
Only remark I can make is that I really think they should not close the riverside terrace one day a week eventhough occupancy is low.Shut another place down but the terrace is really the pulse of the hotel in the evening.More
