Location for us was perfect and bed was comfortable
Soulless room - booked a suite and had a old plastic white fridge in hallway!!! Asked 3 times to have it removed as was in way of bathroom Not enough toiletries etc provided / this room cost 485 pounds for 1 night !!!!!!!!! Used to stay here when owned by Rocco forte and was a very special hotel then - not anymore
Breakfast was very good as were the Staff
Very rude guy who met you at the front of Hotel who refused to open taxi door or take our case to the steps as he said he was too busy ! Also despite advising housekeeping upon arrival that we had an allergy to feather bedding nothing had been changed by the evening and we were subject to the change taking place whilst we were in the room getting ready to go for Dinner ! A lot of sneezing took place ! We were discounted from our bill .
Staff not overly friendly or polite
The convenience of being near the theatres and the breakfast, which was excellent and excellent value.
My partner had arranged for flowers in the room on arrival for my birthday. Reception staff spoiled this surprise and the flowers were not there. Neither was the promised bottle of champagne.
Didn't eat the breakfast, tea/coffee supplies only had 4 x small milks enough for one drink each, very mean.
We asked for a quiet room, we wanted a nap in the afternoon. Lots of building noise, opened the window and stared straight into the eyes of the workman drilling into our window!! However, we are early risers so had gone before the workmen started the next morning, still suffered from lack of sleep though.
