We arrived late-ish on Friday night after nightmare traffic getting out of London and reception called to check we were on the way and confirmed that the brasserie was open for food till ten o'clock - just what we needed. The room was huge and comfortable, dinner was fine and next morning's breakfast excellent. Reception worked wonders by lending us an iPad charger as we'd forgotten to pack one and gave us excellent directions to the Russell-Cotes Museum which is a complete gem. On Saturday we ate in the main restaurant where food was very good and the service from the maitre d and all his staff was superb. All in all the staff here couldn't have been more helpful and if we're that way again we wouldn't go anywhere else.
