                      lovely hotel, excellent breakfast. staff knowledgable.

                      No parking. Staff came across bit rude/snoby. Stayed in lots of 5* hotels and boutiques, this is the only one that has ever made us feel a little uneasy at times. concierge staff were rude when we declined they carry our bag.

                      Lovely looking hotel and friendly staff, attractive, clean room, good breakfst selection. Would stay again due to location.

                      Room was unbearably hot on a sunny day. Heat blasting out all day and unable to switch off/turn down at night so did not sleep much. Air conditioning totally ineffective. Thought menu in 24 hr restaurant very unimaginative. Very little to tempt us as a light tea before theatre trip.Would eat out on another occasion. Bill initially had extra charge for breakfast although I had already paid for it in room charge. Taken off when pointed out but was not impressed by this.

                      I stayed here to have a good night's sleep before an important meeting, and that's exactly what I got.

                      Breakfast room crowded and noisy.

                      The room was very comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. Staff were all helpful and polite, I couldn't have asked for more.

                      Leisure facilities and room superb

                      Air conditioning could not go lower than 18 degrees - very warm at night

                      The reception staff were very helpful and efficient. The room was very large and for the price good value. In fact I think I was upgraded or they put me in the wrong room but very grateful for this. The chocolates in the room in celebration of my 40th Birthday was a lovely touch but 11 years too late.

                      Restaurant was over priced and with over elaberate food. Presentation of the food was a good laugh but the staff did not enjoy the joke. Chef needs to sit down and reflect on what makes a good meal - inventive dishes with excellent food or is it an impressive menu and presenation. Try simple plates and re-train the staff on handling ackward customers [discerning well traveled customers in other words. As a domestic hotel with 5* it was fine - on an internatonal level it would get 4. Acceptable but would not stay there for pleasure for example.

                      The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was gorgeous.

                      The hotel was faultless but other guests making a noise in the corridor at night was a bit annoying.

                      The food at Opus One was very good but served in a strange "modern" way difficult to handle .The Banana desert with chocolate sauce consisted of 3 mini drops of chocolate......ridiculous. The staff at the restaurant was very nice, helpful and efficient. But please plates woud be better then slabs of wood !!!!!!

                      The rooms are a bit small, and the furniture is a bit old.

                      Fast check in & check out, comfortable room, clear understanding of the personal need ( i requested a late check out due to my late buisness meeting, the Hotel staff were very supportive)
