I would have loved to give all 5 star reviews however we had a speaker hanging off the ceiling with a 1 inch gap, near the bed, you are always worried about secret cameras lol. Also, one night we got room service, the burgers were so burnt and charcoal we would have sent them back if we weren't drunk and starving. Oh, one night we got a fruit platter and it looked liked it was cut up and fridged 4 days ago. Apart from that, we loved our stay, room 888, it wasn't lucky lol.

I loved everything about my stay. The staff were extremely professional and nothing was an issue no matter how tedious it might’ve seemed. I could not recommend the Darling high enough to anyone I know. All staff treat you as if you were royalty and the rooms were extremely well put together. Every thing is extremely clean and always well presented

I paid much more than I normally would for the penthouse complete with a billiard table room. You can understand I was a bit disappointed when we say a massive cut in the felt on the table taped up with standard masking tape...
