                                        • The location was very good and the hotel was very comfortable. Again staff were attentive, room service was excellent and breakfast was great lovely fresh fruit lots of choice.

                                          Tv reception was very poor, we used the bar downstairs once and found to be too expensive for us, the pool was really tiny, and not designed for swimming.

                                        • Excellent location very quite nice staf, restaurants and a short cab/, the architecture of the old MarlBorough Street magistrates court has been retained beautifully.

                                          Very poor service and never a 5 star hotel, for the price of the room one would like to see some fresh coffee and a larger selection of teas.

                                          Very bad service and tiny room. Very small gym.

                                        • The location was perfect, overall the hotel was lovely and architecture of the building was amazing. The lobby was very nice, staff were great and the beds were super comfortable too. Breakfast selection was good and facilities were excellent.

                                          The spa is a real haven and one will not believe you are in the city centre, not a cheap place by any means, the rooms are often from around.

The lobby is stunning and the staff are very friendly, bar is fun and our free upgrade room was fantastic. Courthouse burger is tasty and lovely sandwiches and a cocktail to wash down. The spa is very discreet and private.

                                          Tv picture quality bad, breakfast is poor.
