We dined for lunch at their main restaurant.
Yes, the service is impeccable, and yes the setting is gorgeous ..... but you better be very rich, or on business expenses, and a good actor.
We were staying in a nearby hotel, and had an empty few hours, so decided to find out if the lofty reputation was well deserved :
1. The gardens are stunning
2. The decoration and quality is of palace standard
3. You will be treated like royalty.
4. You better be rich, or pretend to be rich, because everybody there is dripping in designer clothes, and looking around to see if you rank above or below them. After a couple hours this can become quite unnerving.
If you are not somebody, you better be a good actor, as almost everybody else there is somebody.
If you are not a captain of industry, nor famous, then good luck trying to keep your act going.
Summary - dazzling, but extremely pretentious. Is that you?
