We stayed at this hotel for a wedding - which was being held at the hotel.
The room was - at best - dated. The bathroom was already an insect graveyard when we checked in!
Room service was prompt and the food we ordered was good and well presented.
During the wedding the function bar service was awful, with two fairly disinterested staff - unbelievably it was quicker to walk down to the lounge bar to buy drinks!
The worst part of the experience was breakfast... My full cooked breakfast was missing several items from the plate, and my wife's pancakes arrived at the table still raw in the middle. My comment about my missing breakfast items was answered by waiting staff with "It's nearly the end of breakfast, so you just get what's left..."
I'm absolutely incredulous at this poor level of service from a 4 star hotel!
