First impressions are of a gorgeous building and a rather nice interior. But it is just an impression. The staff, I have to say, are wonderful. The facilities are not.
My room, for no good reason, had a huge four poster bed with the most uncomfortable mattress I have ever slept on. Despite three pillows and the half of the duvet I wasn't using underneath me, it was still rock hard. And I have a lot of personal padding! I saw in every hour from 11 to 4. At 3 someone decided to have a shower next door. The walls are paper thin. At 5 someone left (probably someone else who couldn't sleep) clattering down the corridor.
Dinner in the restaurant was very curate's egg. Nicely done chicken livers - properly pink - but a clearly re-heated main course with congealing gravy and rock hard meat. (Probably setting me up for the bed ahead.) The house wine was surprisingly good, as was the home made ice cream.
Would I stay there again? Not in that room.More
