I cannot say enough good things about this hotel, and Somerset House adjacent to it.
We booked out both hotels for our wedding, which took place at the weekend - the idea being that the groom's family stayed in Florence, while my side stayed in Somerset.
The rooms are beautifully decorated in both hotels and especially our master suite in Somerset (room 2). It is amazing - loads of space, massive bath and monsoon-style shower. It was perfect for a bride, with lots of room for my dress, bridesmaids and mother running about! Plus the hair and makeup team when they arrived could make use of the nice landing space between the three rooms on our floor.
Ellie the manager is amazing and the whole team just can't do enough for you. The cooked breakfast choice is good and really delicious, and the tray of breakfast they prepared for me on the wedding day itself was fantastic too.
We would highly recommend this hotel group for wedding parties, but also romantic getaways. The attention to details is so high you just can't do wrong.
