Booked two rooms for one night at the Burlington as part of my mothers 80th birthday celebration.
On arrival we had to walk past a group of smokers who seemed to gather on the entrance steps rather than walk a few feet away and keep the entrance clear.
Received a warm welcome on check in and provided with a secured WiFi password
The hotel has maintained a good sense of style and has some great period features.
Our rooms were on the 2nd floor and were well appointed, clean and tastefully decorated.
The bar area was very busy as there was a wedding reception taking place but we managed to get some seats in the lounge (it seems that the only bar available was for residents and the wedding reception)
Breakfast was buffet style and of good quality / quantity with attentive and helpful staff.
Special mention for the duty manager who seemed to pop up everywhere and ensured everything ran smoothly and also sorted out some tea and coffee for us after we had checked out.
Great staff make a great hotel and this was apparent here.
Hotel is in a good location on the leas and I would recommend a visit
