“overall outstanding stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2009

Beautiful hotel, area not so great but once you're in the hotel you forget about the surroundings.

Dinner and breakfast both excellent in Cerise restaurant - staff very helpful and friendly.

The little touches in your room are lovely - there's even fresh milk in your room to go with the fresh coffee machine!

Fashionably and stylishly decorated hotel. Staff are very pleasant. Room was suite no.32 and had a copper bath in front of fire. Molton Brown Smellies and Bang and Olufsen sound system. Comfy bed and furniture. Lovely soft furnishings. Only thing that let the hotel down was the restaurant. It was very expensive and was charging Michelin star prices but the food was not of this standard nor was the service. It was a sunday evening and there was only one other table dining and we were informed the music system was not working. It was our wedding anniversary and the ambiance of the restaurant was cold and awkward. Our glasses were not topped up until I requested. Yet the prices were around £18 for a main course. There was no marmite at breakfast in the morning.The car is valet parked, although they wanted to charge £10 for the pleasure. We managed to negotiate this is our room rate. Overall a good experience but would not dine in the hotel again. There is a Carluccios next door.

I've travelled all over Europe on business and stayed in some fabulous places - this hotel is on my doorstep - stayed for a big birthday - one of my favourite hotels - can't fault it (other than the rates - but you get what you pay for - just wish I could stay more often!).
