    Fantastic location, worth a splurge.

    Lovely stay, great view of the Temple of Concordia from our room. We also did the Taster menu in the restaurant our first night. The meal was incredible. Loved the fact that if you have bought your ticket to the temples online you can enter via the hotel's private entrance. Great stay.

  • 6.0.Good

    Nice Hotel poor service

    Our stay was very pleasant however the service we received left quite a lot to be desired. When our shower was reported as not working we were told that it would be looked into. The next day the shower was not working and we reported the issue again. We were told that the shower was working when staff helped us to get the water to the expected temperature despite 20 minutes before being spent to do the same. At no point did any hotel staff say sorry for the inconvenience. At check out we were not asked how our stay had been. A five star hotel should show that the staff are seeking to provide a service that is above and beyond others in the area. This is not what was received and we were rather disappointed. Nice hotel poor service.

    Perfect views

    The location as expected was perfect. We stayed in the Presidents suite which on balance was worth the extra. Make sure you visit the ‘caves’ in the Temple gardens.

  • 4.0.Fair

    A planned wedding with loud music until 1am should have been disclosed at the time of booking. We were assured a quiet room and found it was 50 feet from the band and on the street. Service is very nice and polite but reception desk is completely useless. Won’t be coming back.
