Overall, I am fairly disappointed for such an iconic hotel. Starting from the poor valet service provided by damaging my car to the table service at the bar, and the housekeeping. There is no pride in the work they do, they just keep the hotel ticking. I can only afford credit to the chefs.

Booked a suite as wanted to enjoy 3 days for special occasions, was expensive but thought it would be worthwhile. Hotel communal areas are very tired In places but you have to respect it’s an old beautiful building that still delivers the opulence when you enter until you look more closely! Breakfast and staff amazing, Cyan restaurant, food & staff amazing Views from our room couldn’t have been beaten but room needed some attention, towel rail hanging off and wash basin cracked, furniture a bit battered. My main disappointment was no mini bar provided just plastic bottles of water & basic biscuits, I’m sure for the cost of the room some little touches could be added to make it more special, other less expensive hotels provide these touches and this is what I think most people like to have. I did complain to the duty manager who did try and make amends but it would have been nice not to have had to complain given the cost of the stay.
