We tried to give the ‘new‘ Belle Vue Lounge a chance, one evening last week ….. hoping to have some cocktails. I moved around the room trying out the different types of seating but couldn’t find anything that was comfortable to sit in or on. Some of the chairs I just kept sliding off due to the fabric ! It would have been funny if I wasn’t so sad about the changes. We abandoned that plan and out of curiosity I tried sitting in the chairs in the new coffee area off the lobby…. I slid off those too. It might partly be due to my attempted relaxed posture… but even so…The recent renovation screwed it up. It doesn't look remotely as good as it used to; it's kind of a weird mishmash of modern and themed.
luckily some of the old comfortable seating still remains in the lobby …fingers crossed they don’t modernize that.
