Delicious hearty food with a great 'formal dining' atmosphere. The wait staff were extremely courteous, quick service, and very pleasant live music. Highly recommend!

I know this will sound terribly pretentious and nit-picky, but: The teaspoons with which one eats some of the items of the high tea (e.g. the cheese-cake and creme brulee), and boiled eggs at breakfast are really thin and and unpleasant to use. The handles tend to dig into the hands, especially when exerting a little pressure, e.g. breaking the crust on the cheese-cake, and the thin edge of the spoon is unpleasant on the lips. Obviously this is a very small thing, but when such attention to detail has gone into most aspects, it seems a shame that this thing, which could be easily changed, has been overlooked. On the positive side, if that's my only complaint, it must be pretty good!

Service below that of previous two nights probably due to bedding in new personnel but the more important criteria of food presentation and quality still 5 star.

The service could not be faulted and it was made more enjoyable by the diverse nationalities of the wait staff.
