Heritage Hotel with the latest in Hospitality

Melbourne, Australia

We had two stays at The Majestic in October and November. Both were for several days. The staff were always welcoming and helpful, the meals were excellent in both restaurants, and the rooms were spacious and comfortable as well as being well decorated in heritage style. Cannot recommend too highly.

2nd visit to The Majestic Hotel

Cardiff, United Kingdom

This was our second visit to the Majestic in two years. As previously experienced we found all staff to be helpful, chatty and pleasant, especially the forecourt meet and greet staff. Rooms in the tower block are spacious and well appointed, particularly for a short stay, our only criticism is the bathroom lacked hand towels and face towels. We booked afternoon tea as two years ago this was exceptionaly good, sadly this time we found it rather disappointing. Partly because this time we opted for the conservatory rather than the colonial cafe the latter has a better ambiance. More disappointing was the afternoon tea itself, yes they did the showy bit of letting us smell the loose leaf tea to select what we wanted and then served the pots with tea bags in them. The quality of the food is also not as good as it was, sandwiches were rather dry (been left out in a warm kitchen) served with processed cheese and slimy lettuce. Hot snacks are no longer hot 2 years ago they were served in a table top warmer, this time it was not heated, previously hot food was malaysian in style this time it was a small cold quiche and cold potato croquette. Finally the pastries now appear to be shop bought with little or no taste. In summary a good hotel with good staff but avoid the afternoon tea, previously we rated the Majestic a 5 now for us it is just a 4.
