        • Beautiful restoration in great location, excellent hotel and all the staff were nice and helpful, especially the valets. Rooms were spacious, well furnished and champagne bar was good. Breakfast was buffet and fine.

          In the evening the hot water iin the bathroom wasn' and hundreds of dirty glasses piled up in the champagne bar. No alternative breakfast arrangements for early travelers.

        • The location is fantastic and hotel is gorgeous after the mega refurbishment. The staff cant do enough to help you and always polite, perhaps rooms on a higher floor would be better. The champagne bar has excellent cocktails for very reasonable prices.

          A grand old building that has recently been renovated well.

          A beautiful old hotel and the shower ran cold and hot each time was used was a little annoying.

          Lobby / check in design is terrible considering historic past as a grand railway hotel.

        • Location excellent staff clean and good bus connection via bus/. Beautifully renovated railway hotel, classic building and at that price I did expect better. The bathrooms were tiny, the champagne bar was lovely and breakfast was possibly the worst breakfast ever.

          Slow service, bed was rather hard and the restaurant evening menu was a little limiting.

The hotel is absolutely huge and interior is fabulous and the chandelier in the Foyer is stunning. The staff are friendly and very professional, helpful concierge printed out our boarding passes for us. The rooms have very comfortable beds.

          The holding area for events feels crowded, cramp and not big enough.
