Disappointing Luxury
I have been for a meal here several year ago for engagement and my now wife loved the look of the hotel so I thought for my 40th I would book us a weekend stay. The room itself cost over £2000 for the weekend and I can say the following about our stay. Room: Very nice carpets and reasonable bed. Well stocked mini-bar and the hotel had arranged some cakes and champagne to be in room on arrival - very nice! Bathroom: Nice fully marbled but shower not very powerful. Bath nice and big. The toilet roll was dreadful and cheap - better toilet roll in public toilets. It was very thin and tore easily. Bed: Ok but the worst pillows ever invented. Look nice when not lying on them but "deflate" with the slightest pressure. I would have brought my own if I had known this. The staff were very attentive and polite and the young lady at check in was excellent. There were renovations ongoing so it was limited as to where we could go. The promenade was closed off as was the main bar and I would have liked to have gone there. On the whole, disappointing for a once in a lifetime trip. All in all final bill was over £4000 as we went to spa, bar and michelin starred restaurant etc. but looking at my CC bill it appears that close to £5000 has been taken (I am ringing to check this out). I'll go to Premier Inn next time and don't even get me started on Restaurant Alain Ducasse.

Absolutely amazing stay! Celebrated my birthday and the hotel spoiled me with balloons, a small cake and gift to take home. While the hotel is undergoing some renovations, they have definitely gone out of their way to ensure guests aren’t impacted and don’t see any of the works. Love it and would definitely love to return again one day!
