We were offered a free room upgrade upon arrival ! Nice touch. Our superior king room 117 had the wow factor for us! loved the hallway decor to the rooms (1st floor our floor), quite grand! Loved the ambience and decor of the restaurant and bar area ( this is one of the main reasons I wanted to stay here) ! loved the air conditioning in rooms especially on a warm night! Staff very polite and helpful. At breakfast I felt for the staff as they were rushing round trying to accommodate various requests from the guests because one member said they were 4 members short. well done to those who served us!
Liked the fact that check out time was 12 pm and not the usual 10 am that we are used to in hotels so a good 2 hours extra was good if we wanted to plan & not have to rush back to room after breakfast to pack.
On the downside, the air conditioning needs to be fixed or installed downstairs in restaurant/ bar and breakfast areas. too hot in the breakfast area! credit, there were fans in restaurant and bar area but not down the steps to breakfast. Our king size ( 2 x zip & link mattresses) was too firm for my liking, needs to be upgraded to one more comfy even though I'm used to a memory foam mattress at home. Horses for courses though. Disappointed there was no one playing the piano in the evening. I asked a waiter at Madison's bar why that was ,I was told that they have no licence . The hotel needs to get said licence and employ someone because this would add so much to the ambience. and to be honest when I saw the picture of a piano on hotel website I fully expected someone to be playing it!
That said overall we had a great stay and would stay here again!
