Arriving in shorts and shirt at this pristine Hotel in mid summer heat did not at first allow me comfort as this well placed establishment is a perfect business meeting place, and i found myself surrounded by formal business attire! Despite this, the staff quickly put me at ease and treated me as if I were in full morning suit! I need not have worried as there was a good mix of casual visitors, but expect this type of mix if you visit but don't let it spoil your stay by any means. All staff excellent, and extremely attentive from Concierge to reception, bar, room and restaurant staff.
Rooms beautiful and ours situated in the cobbled courtyard where we also enjoyed a light lunch and refreshments in a superb outdoor environment.
Stunning building, beautifully kept and bedecked with flowers throughout.
On the expensive side, and seemingly a favoured hotel for North American visitors , perhaps the draw of Kempinski standards no doubt?
All said and done - great experience highly recommended for a special occasion but you will need to save those pennies......
