    Fair 4.0
    Over promised, under delivered.
    Overall very disappointing. The Waldorf over promises and under delivers. The room (Alexander Graham Bell Suite) was tired and a little tatty grieve this is meant to be one of their superior rooms, the AC / heating wasn’t working so ended up with 5 x electric radiators. Service lacked any urgency and long queues to get a table for breakfast.
    Martin, gb2 night family trip
    Poor 2.0
    Overpriced and Disappointing
    Cost was high so expected premium room as sold however the room was not premium. Mediocre to say the least.
