Firstly I should point out the Reception staff and concierge were welcoming and helpful. The room and property in general is tired and in need of renovation. The shower didn’t work properly, the grout was falling from the tiles! We went for a quick drink in the bar to be told that there was no room and all tables were reserved. I explained we were guests but that made no difference. I spoke with the Duty manager who explained this was standard practice for the hotel but that I was not the first guest to complain about this. Not surprised! The breakfast had good reviews here but this was not my experience. Took ages to get service, food arrived cool the coffee also. I will not be staying in any Starhotels properties again, that’s for sure.

We really enjoyed the property upon arrival, resonant with history, beautiful. The room was small, but really nice actually. The staff working was really friendly and accomodating. Our frustration was with the reservationist who informed us that, in order to have a late check-in (yes, check -in, not out) we would need to give up our first night (non refundable)- so they could sell the room again, but we could not arrive until the normal check in time for the second day. We paid for the room-- this policy was absurd. It's sad when a great property is affected by a single employee enforcing a poorly conceived policy.
