Wonderful gardens and pool area.
Traditional luxury in a spendid setting.
Lobby entrance and Bar. Gardens are lovely and one can stroll into town by way of the University park right across the hotel entrance.
Grand Hotel with Issues
Location and grounds are spectacular, as is the breakfast buffet.
Late night noise issues from bar and terrace area kept us awake and even awakened us from a sound sleep one evening. Required repeated calls to front desk to resolve. Bathroom lights also miswired and require turning on room lights which is problematic when companion is sleeping. Overall, it's a very nice hotel with very major flaws.
There was mold on the ceiling of the marble shower due to poor ventilation. While they moved us into another room, one of the attendants commented, "hundreds of our rooms look like that." Not a good state for a 5 star resort.
We enjoyed everything. Byron was extremely helpful and gave us spectacular service. High tea was lovely and the staff friendly as well as efficient and courteous. The grounds and building are simply beautiful
