I stayed here for a long weekend with my mother in March and can genuinely say that this is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in! Great location slap bang in the middle of town. Upon arrival we were upgraded to a spotless, spacious suite with (boiling!) hot water, a fully fitted immaculate kitchen and even a washing machine and tumble dryer (which came in handy as we got caught in heavy snow a few times). Loved the very unusual but tasty breakfast ! Great being able to eat breakfast in the privacy of your own room without having to do without the delicious fresh bread which was delivered to your room every morning around 8am. I cant praise the staff enough who were incredibly helpful, friendly and courteous and who went to great bother to ensure that we had a great weekend. One of the young ladies working at reception rang around all of her own favorite restaurants when I told her that we couldn't get a table until we finally got a reservation at one of the best places in town! (its almost impossible to get into any of the popular restaurants on Friday/Saturday evening so I would advise booking in advance).
Would definitely recommend this hotel and am already planning a trip back next year. Thanks to everyone at the Residence - we had a fantastic time!
PS - Some people have complained about the noise but we must sleep like the dead as neither of us heard a thing.
