Stayed for one night in room 223. The room was an upgraded deluxe room that is one of the refurbished rooms, nicely painted, good bed linen, but carpet very dirty and stained, furniture scratched and chipped in places. In my opinion the room fell short for a 5* hotel. Breakfast itself was good with plenty of choice, we sat outside...

If I were to level one critisism, it was that the bathroom did not match the sumptuous level of the room - it was spartan and basic and clearly lacked sufficient ventilation as it became (and remained) like a sauna after using the shower. So,...
