This is a very fine hotel, full-stop! There is nothing to complain about the spacious rooms and comfortable beds and pillows. You are guaranteed a good night sleep, which is the most important thing in any place, in almost total silence. The air conditioning is also very quiet but did pack up on one occasion.
Even so,the service is extraordinary and the staff are first-class. Noting is too much trouble. The cuisine in the main restaurant is also exceptionally good and the Japanese restaurant equally so.
The swimming pool is, however, poorly managed, with no staff visible and towels left willy-nilly all over the place.Since the view from this site is not particularly attractive, a tall bamboo fence along the canal side might be a good idea.
The hotel is also rather pricey and with greater discounts might attract more visitors. There should also be free Wi-Fi, as this is standard in many countries.
All in all this is a hotel we would recommend and would return to one day again.
