The Majestic is a stunning Georgian building still maintained with its original features in the public areas. I found service at the hotel to be very good with friendly and efficient staff.
My room was one of the “Superior” refurbished rooms which was cleanly decorated and fitted with modern furniture. It was clean and roomy although I did feel the chipboard based furniture was a bit cheap for this magnificent building.
There is no air conditioning in the rooms and it lacked an in-room safe (something I expect as standard in a 4 star these says) but this aside it was a nice enough, comfortable room and a good size. There was a good sized flat screen TV, bathrobes and slippers, tea and coffee making facilities and a trouser press.
The bathroom was modern with a large mirror and efficient shower over the bath.
Breakfast at the hotel was tasty, made with quality fresh ingredients although there was not a lot of choice of cold fare (no meats or cheeses). I had dinner at the hotel on one night (which can usually be purchased at a good rate as part of a package). The food was very nice although the table d’hote menu is a little restricted (5 items per course). The dining room still decorated in 1900’s fashion with magnificent chandeliers does make the meal feel rather special.
I used the pool and Jacuzzi, which was part of the standard rate. This is in a modern area on the side of the hotel and was very nice and efficiently run.
Overall this is a very nice hotel and I am happy to recommend it.
