Can’t speak highly enough about the service in L’Oscar, a wonderful few days.

Exceptional 10.0
Was looking forward to a romantic evening away for our anniversary and L'Oscar was perfect. The building is opulantly decorated and very dramatic, the room was wonderful and the friendly and helpful Claire on the front desk very kindly upgraded our stay. Couldn't fault it.
Adam, gb1 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
Has potential
A beautiful hotel with potential to improve with some experience. A little over priced considering it didnt quite hit the 5* standards you would expect. The staff were lovely but needed a little more training as confusion over how to charge to room when ordering. We ordered room service and the wine wasnt opened for us. No papers available at breakfast which was £50 for 2 on top of the £500 room. Shame we were placed next to a room with interconnecting door when hotel wasnt full- neigbours insisted on runnning in and out from 11pm-1am (door banging kept us awake). Would like to come back and try the baptist restaurant but wouldnt want the expense if certain things not addressed.
