It was pleasant to walk into the hotel with a fire welcoming you back from your day. The staff were generally very friendly and helpful.
Despite the good things about the hotel, I didn't provide a 4/5 star rating for three reasons.
1. As a business traveller (and you will note this for all of my posts), I must have fast, reliable internet. Upon checking into the hotel, I was put in a room that couldn't even connect to the internet! What did is just tell you - I need fast, reliable internet. Thankfully, the staff relocated my to a room across from the router, but I had to move all my stuff. I was not happy. The internet then performed well, but for this review, I highlight this point for other business travelers.
2. The rooms were typical of the region, but there were only single beds which for a frequent 'American/ traveller on business, is a step down. Also, the beds only mildly comfortable.
3. Lastly, and this may be specific to my tastes, the dinner menu was limited for a non-red meat eater like myself. The fish that I ate as OK, but not as good as what I would expect from a hotel that bills itself as a 'premiere' hotel. The breakfast buffet was adequate and sufficiently stocked.
One last point for all hotels, if you cater to North American guests, having more than the BBC International and CNBC Global on endless loops is quite tiresome. Some Fox News would be a welcome relief from the BBC and CNBC. But stay away from the dreck of CNN. less
