The appointment of the hotel, the professionalism and friendliness of the staff and the quality of the food exceeded our expectations. ||* We started with the High Tea at Belle Epoque, where the food was excellent and the staff were both considerate and very professional. |* We then had the pleasure of staying in a really lovely suite on the 12th floor. Once again, our expectations were exceeded with the appointment of the room.|* We had a lovely drink on the rooftop bar where the view was stunning.|* We finished our experience with the breakfast at the Terrace. The potatoes were excellent! ||We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

I stayed here just for a one night staycation birthday treat. Everything was amazing. The suite was perfect, generously over-sized. with good views. Next time (and there will be one) I'll choose to stay in a suite on a higher floor. I stayed on the 8th floor. I dined for lunch in the Terrace Bar and had the honey, miso marinated salmon, with mango salsa, herb oil, a side of steamed greens and the Terrace Trifle for dessert. Again, faultless in every way. I also enjoyed for breakfast and the food was equally wonderful . The only very minor suggestion to note is they bring your main course out very quickly after they have served the continental food. It would have been nice to have a few minutes more of a delay between course. But, so minor in the big scheme of things and get that it's a busy place The wait staff was fabulous. Shout out to Lucille who served me both for dinner and breakfast. But, all the staff from reception to the Terrace and House keeping were lovely.
