The place is very nice but despite the room being very nice we couldn't help but feel very underwhelmed with the prestige room in view of the hotel pictures and the price to stay here. This was disappointing. The manager gave us a bottle of wine on the house when we mentioned this and the quality of the stay was otherwise good. But a few simple tweaks would make a difference. Such as delivering your paper to the room instead of simply finding out that it is just kept in reception. At least mention this please if this is the case. A nice place that lacks a few special touches and feels overly formal. Too expensive even at the discounted rate we had. A good hotel that just doesn't seem to have the right balance and so leaves you feeling a little disappointed. The price and expectations pitch at the 5 star level. The food and service stand up to this but other things aren't special enough.
