                                This place is like a palace instead of a hotel. Every little detail is attended to and one must eat the breakfast buffet. It is to die for! Turn down service at night with slippers and some small cakes when we first came in are memorable. The staff is very efficient and friendly. The hotel is beautifully appointed and the views of the Atlantic Ocean spectacular.

                                The location is wonderful, one of the best views I ever had in a hotel. Service is impeccable and everybody makes you feel welcomed.

                                Prices for the pool menu, very expensive from water to sandwich prices. But I suppose is expected when you're staying in a luxury hotel like this.

                                Reids Palace is truly wonderul, sophisticated and elegant place. Really heavenly place to relax and enjoy beautiful surroundinngs. I would really recommend this place for a truly discerning traveller who knows how to appreciate beauty and comfort combined with excellent entertainment - tea on Reids terrace or Champagne Dinner dance or Manager cocktail party, to name a few. Luxury at its best!

                                Lovely aspect of room, (960). Inclusive evening events........ cocktail party etc. Very helpful staff. The manager who took time to introduce himself to guests. The lovely public rooms and high grade of maintenance throughout. Well done Reid's.

                                I know you can always send down for hot water, but the provision of a small electric kettle would be useful.

                                Luxury and breakfast buffet

                                Average age of guests was really very old for us being a couple in the 40ies. On average approx 65+. Bed was on wheels ( like in Hospital). In my opinion the hotel should make an effort to also attract younger customers.

                                8.8

                                The attention of staff was excellent, wonderful breakfasts, luxury room service; great pools and wonderful setting. Stylish living at its best.

                                The Spa facilities, - unfair that only couples paying for treatments/lunch inclusive costing 380+ Euros could use the jacuzzi. Also the sauna and steam rooms were also reserved only for those paying for expensive treatments and were not available to guests just using the pools. Also, dinner at 60Euro per person plus drinks is rather expensive. Pity they don't have a decent brasserie for lighter lunchtime meals; sandwiches and drinks very expensive so I guess we were paying for the service and ambience (though a bit stuffy.)There is a lovely patisserie across the road which guests use instead, plus a really good inexpensive restaurant.

                                This is a true luxury hotel. The staff are excellent and the breakfast excellent.

                                The price, but then most good things are not inexpensive.

                                Atmosphere, extremely nice and professional staff, the best surprise was the possibility to order the newspaper you wished (even Finnish newspapers). Clean hotel with a lot of historical character. Unbelievably good breakfast! Spa was excellent!

                                Very, very expensive. The middle-age guests were missing, most of the hotel guests were pensionairs.

                                The attention to detail is first rate and the response to requests prompt and always courteous. The Spa is wonderful and it lives up to its reputation as a leading luxury hotel.
