            The restaurant was "way" overpriced for the quality of its food, the bed was slightly too soft.

My bed at home is about as comfy and the car service supplied to us happened to be available each time we needed. Wonderful locker room too, full of amenities and hot tub the high thread count of your sheets. Food is great at the restaurants and you are treated very nicely here, the facility is beautiful.

          • The location was excellent, the hotel was absolutely beautiful and the staff were very courteous, friendly. The bed was very comfortable and i loved happy hour at the terrace bar and enjoyed using the pool and gym. The food was great, and the music was even better, the concierge service was quite helpful in finding us a local steakhouse.

            The street noise kept us awake some, lobby were tired and as I stated earlier, the elevators were quite outdated. The bathtubs were too small, the breakfast was too expensive.

          • The location was fantastic and the bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I'. The building was old and beautiful, staff were friendly. Room was very clean, elevators were fast and breakfast in The Georgian each morning was peaceful.

            The bar area is uncomfortable and that's truly sad as 's a lovely place to go for tea. Internet access is not free.
