This iconic hotel is not the grand lady she used to be, the lounge furniture is shabby, the lobby though is still old style glory.
BUT, the afternoon tea is wonderful, and the BEST scones ever,the hotel might need refurbishment but the service is still old style courtesy.
I have not stayed there, I have seen the bedrooms, nothing special, the staff are delightful, BUT the afternoon tea, SUPERB and best of all not expensive, £20 for Two, now thats a real deal.
Try to get a table in the conservatory part of the lounge and enjoy
