Formerly the Lanai resort, this place was updated, trendified, and reopened six months ago. Using somewhat of an Alice in Wonderland theme, but with a blue rabbit instead, Dash has mad decor which I think I liked quite a bit. There are too many wacky things to describe, so I’ll include a load of pics at the end.

We spent a couple of nights at Dash, and we were quite impressed with our room which was actually bigger than it looked like it was going to be. They also provided a cot so we didn’t need to use our travel one.

The room has a large comfy bed and a big desk, with a reasonable shower. There is a kettle to make tea, and a TV with a few English language channels, including sports and films. It was a slightly noisy room at night, as it backed onto the car park access road, which was bad noise, and beyond that the jungle, which was good noise. Oddly, for a hotel less than 6 months old it had a few chipped tiles, some peeling paint, and some crumbling plaster.

Breakfast was a selection of a la carte choices from a decent menu, rather than a buffet, and you could have as many as you wanted. Very weirdly, they seemed to have plagiarised some menu descriptions from Dishoom at Kings Cross! I guess they didn’t expect a huge overlap in clientele. Their kejriwal was the pick for us even though it was served on sourdough bread rather than the filo pastry I saw in an earlier review; it might not have not looked the prettiest, but the flavour of the toast topping was excellent.

Overall, the staff were a little below average, with housekeeping forgetting to return in an hour like they said they would, and a very weird moment when a staff member lied to us that a door couldn’t open in order to get our buggy in (I then opened the door).

We were there for a wedding, and it worked really well as a venue with great backdrops and a sense of fun. As a hotel, it needs to add some substance to the undoubted style.
