    One of the best hotels ever!

    Wonderful hotel (stayed in the Victory Wing). Comfortable and beautifully decorated. Loved being on the sea watching the ships coming and going. Delightful breakfast and swimming pool on the 6th floor terrace. Tremendous service by all staff that we met. 15 min walk in to the old part of Georgetown. Room lights more atmospheric than functional but that's my only critic! Would love to come back one day.

    Inconsistent Service

    This was for my honeymoon. We stayed in the heritage wing. Upon checking in they insisted they had no room with 1 bed even though that is what we booked. A manager had to come in to help us get the room we paid for. After that we asked if there were available room upgrades to which they said yes. We informed them we are hotels.com gold members and it was at this point the receptionist tried to convince us we don't need an upgrade even thought we are eligible but that our room was better than the upgrade. It was late and we were tired so we settled for none. When we got to the room we realized that the pillows were smelly. They smelled like sweat even though the sheets smelled clean. The next morning when we walked to breakfast we got some people telling us good morning and others ignoring us. The level of service for such an expensive place just wasn't here. Knowing that we had 20% discount on spa and food we charged everything to the room. When we were checking out we had to take more than 2 hours of back and forth for the manager to settle that we deserved our discount. We got many excuses originally on why they couldn't do it. Eventually we did get our 20% but it took too much time and effort. This hotel needs better service for the price. There were some positives but they aren't worth mentioning. With a hotel of this price and reputation they need to do better.

    Elegant old hotel, beautifully restored. We stayed in the older, original section. It was great. We didn’t look at the newer area, so I don’t know what it’s like. The restaurants are nothing special. The bar is great

    Everything (well, almost) is wonderful and authentic. Courteous staff. Great location. Only issue we had was shower water temperature which after 10 minutes in the the shower, the water becomes dangerously hot. It doesn't matter how you set it. Even the cold water only came out scalping hot. Not sure what happen. I had to move to the bathtub but after 30 second, the cold water becomes hot too.

    Well maintained luxurious old world charm. The Sarkies restaurant for breakfast was nice but under staffed, so service was slow. Besides that, hotel is well located and beautifully restored and maintained.

    Old style charm

    Great old style hotel with old fashion charm. Although service was impersonal, everyone was very polite and appropriate. The daily fruits and evening reception was appreciated. Some updates needed include more power outlets near the bed or USB ports, better quality slippers, more seating by the pool and a shuttle service to the local malls.
