                            • The location is good and atmosphere is great. The staff is polite and efficient, the rooms are clean. The bar/lounge is comfortable and capacious.

                              Quiet, old fashioned hotel and breakfast and restaurant are overpriced.

                            • Quiet location in residential area and wonderful Country. Good hotel unrushed adequate breakfast and beautiful, well maintained historic building. Beautiful lobby, very friendly staff and the junior suite was roomy and comfortable. The food in the restaurant was fantastic.

                              The rooms were rather tired withan odd mix of furniture.

                            • The location was great &, the hotel was very clean and comfortable, the staff were helpful and friendly. The bathroom was better and breakfast was sufficient.

                              Room was quite small and the restaurant was very expensive.

                            • The area was quiet and the staff were exceptional and arranged for the girls to have massages in the hotel. Front desk was very helpful and bed was comfortable. Breakfast there was lovely, dinner and service were excellent.

                              A wonderful atmosphere and old World clubby style in the public rooms. No free wireless, restaurant expensive and much from wine card wasn'.

                            • Central quiet location and the associated restaurant, the Gallery, was wonderful. Hotel holt was superb, in addition, the price was quite good and we booked on Booked, the front staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was nice, the 2 Happy Hours in the bar each night were much appreciated and the breakfast buffet was delicious and varied.

                              Very uncomfortable situation, taxis are expensive there.
