We came here for a family birthday and at first we picked the hotel for convenience but it’s pretty much a destination hotel.
We stayed one night in one of the rooms on the top floor –( no noise at all ) rooms are small but are really well designed and decorated. I would say each room is designed to look like a luxurious mod con couchette of an old fashioned train. Bed is comfy and enough space to put any luggage away. The bathroom is tiny but I don’t think it’s a hotel to spend a week in – it’s a one or two night lux/ convenience London stop off.
There are tea and coffee making facilities in your room but at the end of each floor is a pantry with all the essentials like tea, coffee, real mugs and real milk !!! The wagon wheels, cake and jelly babies are a great touch
We had breakfast, lunch and dinner in their new restaurant – lovely food and excellent service at all times – very impressive !
I would definitely come back here whether I was staying the night or not.
