This hotel is definitely worth a visit. The room was lovely (large double with roman bath) and the main hotel areas are also quite grand and very elegant. This is not a contemporary hotel (our usual choice), but was a very nice change and had all the modern comforts, but with a touch of old class.
My only gripe about the hotel was the bar / waiting staff in the main lounge. We waited quite a while to order a drink and in the end gave up as we were ignored until we moved seats. The drinks were also very expensive, and are way above even top London prices. I would recommend this hotel, but find a nearby bar for drinks.
