Only negative would be the constant kitchen staff coming through the bar with trolleys and back again with empty ones. Didn’t seem very professional. Otherwise all absulolutely fab.

A hotel letting its standards drop
A pity to see a hotel let its standards drop. Breakfast remains excellent. Other food is good although after over 3 years it is time the menus were updated and changed. I always take a junior suite and unfortunately over the last year between poor housekeeping and decor deterioration they are becoming increasingly shabby. Several bulbs were broken. Bed was only partially made with no fitted sheet just a mattress protector the bathroom was not properly cleaned. Night security porter touches on outright rude and to so.eone smaller than me may of come across as intimidating. He was not happy that 10 minutes after i checked in he had to unlock the door to the carpark so I could get another bag from my car.

Lovely hotel but an investment in softer beds would be advisable.
