Stayed. At this hotel after new year and we loved it, we were given room 25 which we felt was spacious and very luxurious. We booked a bath butler service complete with rubber duck, chocolate torte and champagne, so were pleased with the roll top which we requested and not the modern square alternative the hotel also has.
Checking in the staff were lovely, they need a card to take a £50 pre authorisation in case you use any minibar facilities, bill drinks to room etc - we decided to leave £50 cash instead which was fine but clearly not probably the most chosen method, we were glad we did though as on check out a couple in front must have done this by card to which the hotel staff stated they had released the pre authorisation and should be back on your account in a few days to a week!!! Mmm didn't really like that so when we go again it will be cash.
We did eat at the restaurant the steaks were beautiful and we are picky!!! But be aware you are advised you can choose two courses, but not told there is a supplement for the steak .... We didn't mind and it was worth it but think they should tell you though. Breakfast the next day was also great .... Something for everyone.
All in all we are definitely going back on the simple package ... Suited us perfectly and the bath butler will also be on our list as well as the lush cocktail and steak.
