We've just got back from three nights at the Grand Hotel Majestic. We stay in a lot of good hotels but this places was really something special.
It is a hotel of the old school, timelessly decorated, some may say old fashioned, but that's part of the grandiose charm. The ceilings are high, the chandeliers are large. It is what it is and makes no apologies.
Our room was really comfortable, the king size bed was lovely, we had twin sinks in the bathroom. The hotel itself is really quiet, there is always going to be some street noise as it's very centrally located but that didn't really intrude.
I cannot praise the staff highly enough; they knew my name, nothing was too much trouble and service was delivered with a smile.
We dined at the I Carracci restaurant on Valentine's Day, the food and wine were superb.
