All the gripes I normally have about hotels were all in place here; its unusual for a place to totally share your philosophy ; great check in manager who really cared about your every need, nothing too much trouble.
Initially I was a little disappointed that there was no outside terrace and the large one I found on the 5th floor was for the exclusive use of a couple of rooms. I also didn't know to the last day that some rooms had balconies; if I had known... a missed opportunity for a very well designed hotel
The whole place has a cool vibe with young guys doing the concierge and front of house functions
Was odd to see one of the 'Experience Managers' was an English Guy ; made it feel even more at home in a slightly modern colonial sort of way!
Love the village cafe for breakfast
And the Duck restaurant for Dinner on my last night
The rooms were serviced very well with copious extras
They had quite complicated lighting and was very disorientated on my first morning, when Jet lagged ; i thought lights had come on from under the blinds; it was the sun !
Its very good value if you compare internationally with other cities
