Having staying at the cinnamon grand hotel for the last 8 years it was a big decision to try the Kingsbury....all in all we are pleased we did.we stayed in the executive floor.
I will start with the positives first... The beds were excellent so comfortable.The room is a tad small but very well appointed and a lovely bathroom but with shower only( not an issue for me),the public areas are lovely ,a great selection of good quality restaurants,especially the fish restaurant .
The pool was stunning and the rooftop sky lounge was a great place for a drink.
As we were on the exec floor we had use of the lounge....this I have to say was the main disappointment ... It was more like a small formal lounge rather than a comfortable lounge ....there were no armchairs or sofas just rather uncomfortable chairs.Also a poor selection of snacks in the eve but the biggest issue was that their timings for evening drinks and snacks was 5 to 7 pm,which starts and finishes too early for us as often we don't finish work and get back to the hotel until
7 pm...the staff in the lounge were excellent especially Milroy and Asanga.
Other slight negatives .... Generally the staff ,although friendly are not up to standard yet.The gym is very small and not that well equipped.
But all in all a very comfortable hotel
