“It was like staying with a friend who has a beautiful house”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2011

We spent one night at The William Cecil when it first opened. We were blown away by the quality of the staff who were all charming, helpful, friendly without being obsequious and above all professional.

We had a small room which was beautifully decorated and not an inch of space was wasted. This was without doubt the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in in a hotel. It really was like sleeping in the kind of bed that you would like to have at home and never get out of. The duvets and pillows were all feather filled and covered with high quality bright white bed linen. And this comes from the person who actually travels with their own pillow normally!

We had a delicious breakfast (notable was the freshly made jug of summer fruit milkshake) with piles of newspapers. Again the dining room staff were warm and friendly and very helpful.

The grounds here are lovely, well planned and planted with lovely sunny terraces on which to sit and enjoy the limited sunshine we have had this summer.

All in all a very good night's stay at this new hotel which thoroughly deserves to be full year round.

Room Tip: Ask to face the gardens and not the road
