I have stayed at this hotel numerous times over the past 30 years. The experience this time was OK but not what I expect from the 'Jimmy Cook'. The restuarant feels drab and dark. The rooms lack colour. It's just dated and this iconic hotel should be renovated, inject some life back into it! As for front office staff, sadly I found them to be a little lacking when dealing with them. Nice enough but seemed no one really knew what was what. All of this said, I won't break with tradition on this property so we will go back there next trip.
