Happy with overall 10 night stay. Staff were prompt and always trying their best. Valet staff were excellent and a stand out! Only down side would be the inconsistancy in the food quality. The room service and a la cart breakfast were great some days and other days it was lacking taste, flavour and missing ingredients listed on the menu.

We are a returning guest and IHG member. We had my 50th weekend at Double Bay and occupied a Suite, Bay Room, and Garden Room. The check-in was amazing and rooms were wonderful. We visited the roof top pool and tried to call down to the bar for a drink. Nobody took our call and I needed to go down from Level 6 to Lobby to order my drink. As a suggestion, could you put a phone up there for guests to call room service or the bar direct, I understand the bar is not manned in Winter and perhaps this could be a better option?. We also tried to order drinks at the bar Saturday night and were told it was closed, even though people were still there. On Sunday we visited the bar and lounge for Breakfast. There was a confusion with our rooms, someone had quoted our room for Breakfast and then it took half an hr for our coffees and tea to be delivered. No-one cleared our plates until we asked and there was 3 people standing talking at the bar. I really feel the Food and Beverage area could be improved to maintain your 5 Star rating. Overall our stay was amazing and with better Food and Beverage service it would make it that much better. We will stay again and would recommend
