On arrival at the hotel the reception staff kindly upgraded us to the Grand Dame suite at a very reasonable price. If you can, upgrade to this suite, it is utterly beautiful! Double shower, double sinks, a free standing bath (very Malmaisson in style).
We had 2 flat screen tvs one facing the lounge area and another facing the bed which was the biggest bed I have ever seen! The bed and pillows are so comfortable. There was a Bose surround sound system and luxury glossy magazines to flick through. Even the in-room coffee facilities were good - you get your own caffetierre and fresh coffee. The complimentary body loptions and shower gels provided are by Aaran and are beautiful and very generous sizes, they encourage you to take them home and I am still working my way through them a month on!
We had a couple of drinks in the bar before heading into York and it was beautiful, good service, well-mixed drinks and a a lovely relaxed atmosphere.
The decor of the hotel is incredibly stylish - duck egg blues, washed out greens, grey slate floors, real fires, dark woods mixed in with lovely antique pieces like grandfather clocks and an antique library and dozens of wall cllocks all round the reception area - just stunning.
I'm thrilled to have discovered this new hotel chain and am eaget to visit one in another city soon! I have already recommended this hotel to all of my friends.
