I was a little cautious about the Wentworth due to a couple of bad reviews. I did not experience any of the previous reviewers problems.
With that said - If your looking for immaculate, eat off the nightstand clean, this is not the place...it is an old hotel, it is slightly musty and a little creaky.. but that is what I like, I have no interest in the sterilized sano hotel motif.
Overall the hotel is a beautiful property, it was well staffed and addressed our needs well. The breakfasts were excellent, and the real treat was coming back to the hotel after a hot days exploring to find a chilled Pinot Grigio ready to go. On campus restaurant was really convenient for a birthday.
My only knock was that the staff is really young.. forget about any depth to their knowedge - for instance I asked about a late night carriage ride after out dinner, the "concierge" laughed and kind of dismissed it "thats way too late for them". Turned out I had my pick of 3 companies and arranged myself.
Other than that we had a fantastic stay.
