Our first visit for 10 years and having traveled widely in that time we were a bit concerned that the hotel may have lost some of it's shine. However the surroundings, location, food and welcome were as good as ever. The elegance and relaxed environment were wonderful after a busy day out.
We probably got the worst rooms in the house, in the lobby of one of the outlying buildings, right next to the lift. I guess someone has to have them but I can't help but feel that they should be offered at a lower price. Nevertheless the room itself was clean, comfortable and well cared for. We did not really notice the lift and guest noise as we were out most of the time but a family with young children needing an early bedtime should ask to avoid these.
The hotel and grounds provide a beautiful location and the proximity to the monorail and Magic Kingdom is perfect.
There is some building work going on at the moment but it does not impact on the hotel, also the spa is closed for a while. I hope some of the building will include some expansion of pool areas, these were attractive and well kept but usually the loungers were all occupied.
Staff were brilliant, friendly, welcoming and helpful.
Pleased to get a turndown service, this was most welcome when we returned late and tired.
Prices are high here and yes,you can go elsewhere in the world and get an excellent hotel for a lower price but of course it will not be right next to the Magic Kingdom! We had a wonderful time and will be back.
