Beautiful common areas ..lobby and stairwells are stunning..breakfast was fab..staff are lovely..extras in suite like ghd's and coffee machine were good..large suite with view ...great bathroom and toiletries..large bath and rainfall shower...room was large but felt a bit bare and soulless which would be my only criticism of the whole place

Fraudulent hotel

Pros: Leaving it
Cons: Accurate advertising
Location: It is central
Hotel advertised itself with pool etc facilities. Upon arrival I was told these facilities were closed down as was the restaurant. Given this was the selection factor for paying such an exhorbitant amount for this dated hotel, I have been completely defrauded. Receptionists were unsympathetic when relaying the news of the lack of facilities. TO make things worse room service were ringing the door bell at 9am. All round an awful experience
