The decor is impeccable, room was immaculate, bed more than comfortable, bathroom facility luxurious. Nothing wrong here. The staff were friendly and efficient. Afternoon tea in the lobby is relaxed and welcoming. A well located boutique hotel, it gives one the feel of luxury and safety at a less than extortionate price. This successfully renovated older facility is a very good value in upscale accommodation.
Dinner ordered at the Level 4 restaurant was mediocre. My light menu sandwich turned out to be a slab of dry ham on a less than fresh roll with not much else to say for itself. My partner's meal was also unimpressive. A more elaborate catered dinner served in a banquet room with choice among entrees was rated as good, but not great, by the majority of diners. The breakfast buffet is abundant and selections ordered from the menu were well prepared. I will note that waitstaff suggested on both mornings that a tip added to the breakfast tab would be appropriate, despite our affirmation (since reconfirmed) that all such gratuities were being covered by our tour operator. Dining aside, I would return without hesitation. Sleep there, but consider eating your evening meal elsewhere.
