We last was at the hotel years ago. Nothing has changed much especially the awesome service. A luxurious hotel to stay in with attention to delay despite the age of the hotel. Loved the stay , the hotel, the staff and the restaurants.

Keep rooms clean after check-out, my room was untidy when I checked in, I could also smell cigarette smoke in the room. The supervisor should check the room(s) after every check-out to ensure that everything is in order.More
