This hotel does possess a superb location if nothing else and we thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay, although to be fair it is a bit pricey.
The reception staff were very helpful indeed as was the concierge.
Our room, which only had a view of the car park was very comfortable, in particular the bed. One of the best hotel mattresses we have every slept on.
We ordered two glasses of champagne from the bar upon arrival which were extremely expensive - it would have been cheaper to have got a half bottle but this wasn't even offered which we found disappointing service!
The service at breakfast wasn't the best and didn't befit the standard of the hotel.
One of us ordered eggs benedict and during eating, it was noticed that it hadn't been cooked properly, something which then provided my wife with sickness throughout the rest of the day during our onward travels.
Overall, it was a good hotel, due to its location, but feel it is overpriced!
