    Better than before but not quite right yet

    Renovations to many of the sleeping room areas meant convoluted route to and from room. Newly refurbed room an improvement on the old though some snaggs with fixtures and fittings I did not have time to report such as sink plug not opening, overflow cover not being secured, card slot for rom power swallowing the card and not giving it back Room spotlessly clean though and bed comfortable. Staff generally very good although breaksfast somewhat of a shambles with lots of tables empty yest still people having to wait for places to be laid, had to chase for tea and coffee order too. Stayed here a few time before Intercontinental took it over, and its an improvement over what it was. Would stay again.

    The hotel staff (check-in, concierge and house keeping) were extremely helpful and attentive. However there is a huge opportunity for major improvement with the staff serving breakfast. They were not attentive, slow, forgot or provided incorrect orders. Sometimes the orders were cold or burnt. Very disappointing yo experience such poor service.
