Harden's survey result
For a “really good breakfast” or “fab afternoon tea”, this boutique hotel dining room does still win recommendations. Feedback is much more limited nowadays, though, compared with the heady days of its opening in 2003, when it was the hottest ticket in town.
Ever-polarised reports on this grand and trendsetting design hotel; the problem is that “dishes vary too much here…some can be excellent and others very disappointing” and, despite its reputation, there “isn’t much of a buzz about the place”. The hotel part must be doing better: an extension to add 12 rooms and 12 suites was green-lit in January 2017.
The city’s pioneering design hotel continues to divide views. To cynics, it’s “nowhere near as good as it thinks it is”, “efficient without being special” and with “very little ambience” – to fans, “very grand and beautiful”, with “very welcoming staff” and “very creative” cuisine. (The hotel must be doing something right though, as in October 2016 they announced an expansion.)
The dining room of the city’s original design hotel wins fans for its “high standard” of cooking (including Liverpool FC, “who stay here before a home match”). Overall however, its ratings have been rather middling across the board in recent times.
