    Beautiful room, very well appointed.

    Only one pillow, two would have been much more comfortable, also the mattress was quite hard.

    Location and helpfulness of the staff was great.

    Given the age of the building the windows were drafty and the air conditioning /heating inefficient , consequently struggled to get my room up to an acceptable temperature without the fan sounding like an aircraft was taking off!!

    The massage in the spa was excellent and the Pompadour Restaurant was high quality

    The pool and spa facilities were lacking and needed updating The room was large but was also little dated and the bathroom facilities were temperamental. Breakfast was often disorganised and distinctly average
