Duvets have arrived at the Heights!!
After many years in the dark ages, duvets with nice crisp white cotton covers have arrived, making the whole sleep experience fit the prices charged.
New bathrooms in smaller rooms have not carried through to deluxe rooms and these are tired as is the room decor, though a soft refurb now makes the bed area look smart and comfortable with lots of pillows of different types to suit all tastes.
Staff as always are friendly, helpful and accommodating with the exception of one member of reception staff who appeared to be new and not fully trained. I arrived early for a check-in which was pre-arranged only to be to told no rooms would be ready until 2 pm. Once I pointed out that my early arrival had been pre-arranged (subject to availability) the matter was resolved but this was not a welcoming experience.
Food as always was excellent.
High speed WiFi seems to be available in all rooms now too which is also a great improvement.
Next challenge? Energy saving light bulbs please!
Room rates are still on the high side for the standard of rooms on offer but much better value than previously.
Location is unbeatable and the views breathtaking.
