    Loved the decor, the facilities were outstanding and the room was lovely and spotless. The outstanding feature was the staff. Outstanding service and unfailingly polite, courteous and helpful. We were very well looked after. Well done.

    Some very minor issues. A room lamp was out, a bedside telephone had a sticking hook and would not answer when picked up (but there were 3 other phones) and the bill was not slid under the door the night before check out as promised. Otherwise, room servicing was outstanding.

    The hotel had a boutique feel about it. I particuklalry liked the reading room and bar downstairs. They felt like places you could relax in.

    Superb

    The concierge, Michael, was particularly helpful. We also appreciated the turn down service with the bottles of water. Also, the rooms were quite spacious and the overhead shower sprinkler was a nice touch.

    The jacuzzi/hot tub was not functioning at the time.

    Staff very professionel. Hotel superb. Room extra especially as we were allocated one with a water view although booking was with city view. We were there on Christmas day and got a Christmas bag with cakes and chocolates in it. Very thoughtful!.... One has to remember that it is a luxury hotel hence price of the night is very high. But for a special occasion it is worthwhile.

    Quiet & prestige with genuine staff willing to help as much as possible. Great idea for guests to meet with the management (Mia) over drinks, makes you feel more than just a customer.

    Very decent hotel. Well located in the quiet rock district. Food is good, room is very spacious, good sea view. I like the gorgeous way that the hotel is decorated. The swimming pool is fantastic.

    Considering the price charged, it would be good if breakfast could be included. And every night, there are 2 bottles of water put on the table without prices on. I checked with the reception to find they are not free of charge. It would be better if hotel could make these smalls things more transparent.
