We stayed here during the Grand Prix so overall it's a busy place for most hotels, I knew the location so thought it would be ideally located and it didn't seem too overly pricey. Our room was in the new wing of the hotel which at the time was still being maintained / finished. However it's very well presented and the huge bathroom and shower in our bathroom was just heavenly. Overall I liked the room, however..........the mile walk there with no lifts working near our room was a real pain.
The staff at the pool bar were completely ineffectual, we waited over an hour for a simple sandwich and a drink and they weren't even busy! The room service was terrible and quite expensive for what we got! Plus the staff would just not leave us alone, always knocking on the door, turning down the bed, cleaning or repairing outside your room, I could go on but it felt quite disruptive.
On the whole the staff ruined it for me and my husband it just wasn't relaxing at all! I probably wouldn't recommend this for most of the year but it serviced a purpose and wasn't too crazily priced for the Grand Prix.
