STAYCATION SPOTLIGHT •

I

was staying in the new wing of the hotel which opened in 2017 and has brighter and slightly more modern rooms. The sea view is worth the extra cost when you book just for the serene feeling you get when the curtains peel back in the morning. The city view is not a bad one either considering the property looks out onto the epic skyline. The room itself has a fully stocked mini bar, complimentary tea and coffee making facilities and a wide screen TV which you can watch from the comfy L-shaped corner sofa. The bathroom is brilliantly designed with plenty of compartmentalisation. The toilet, wash basin and bath/ shower facilities are all separated by glass. The shower is also separate from the main tub. When I closed the glass door, the sound was so contained that I could not even hear the music that I left playing on my phone by the sink. That was very neat. A touch pad by the bed allows guests to adjust the mood of the lighting at the touch of a button and curtains can be drawn without leaving the bed by simply clicking on an icon too. The Club Lounge is not just some stale room in a corner of the hotel but occupies a vast area. Club room check-in happens here away from the hustle and bustle of the main reception in the lobby. Natalie did my check-in at the Club Lounge and could not have been more helpful outlining all the timings for breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner plus talking me through all the amenities, facilities and opportunities on offer at the hotel during my stay. She was comprehensive and friendly. The lounge itself has a large dining area to eat and drink at as well as quieter spaces with armchairs to relax with a laptop fact magazine
