Love this hote
I’ve stayed in a lot of hotels over my lifetime. This is a top 10. Elegant but not stuffy. Good food, beautiful, well appointed room, excellent service. I’m fussy and this IS a five star hotel. Well deserved.
Sharon, us1 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
All the little touches made this a very special stay. From the hot towel and Prosecco upon arrival to the personal trainer at the gym and the almonds in the spa. But all the big touches were also spot on. Clean, comfortable room, great breakfast, Jane made absolutely delicious eggs royal. Can’t recommend this hotel enough!
Amr, gb2 night family trip
Good 6.0
No Hot Water for entire hotel
This place is beautiful. Friendly staff. My rating is lower because we dis not have hot water the entire day tuesday. Not until wednesday morning didnthe hot water work. Everything else was 5 star for Africa but not having hot water for a $300+ US room is completely unacceptable for this traveler. I booked 4 rooms for myself and my traveling companions and no discount.
Matthew, us1 night business trip
Very good 8.0
Amazing. the only downside is that they updated the furniture at the reception from the ones that were there last year but did nothing to the rooms. i wish they can update the carpets in the rooms as they have started to deteriorate. the other disappointing thing is that everyones going green but they are brining back plastic bottles instead of their usual branded glass bottles.
DESTINY, gb2 night business trip
Fair 4.0
Poor service
Restaurant and bar staff disinterested in providing services - and focused on playing with their phones and chatting to each other.
