8/10 Very good

A 4 rather than a 5 rating. The rooms are a bit dated for a 5 star hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful. Not very clear which rooms have balcony and which rooms do not. Service was inconsistent - all not massively important but one day cups in room from previous day are cleaned, the next day they are not. One day there’s a late night bed service, the next day there isn’t. Small things that make you wonder what the processes are on the basis of which the hotel is run. Would we go there again: for sure!
