Individual guest reviews

  • Service quick efficient good location and locality great for underground. In addition the hotel is gorgeous, the staff are amazingly helpful and polite, excellent help from the concierge in booking car. A half hours after the check in time of two o'clock for our room to be cleaned, very nice bar lounge and serving hot wine I come in from snow.

  • The location was fantastic and they were as well looked after as the adults in nearby rooms. The decor was also good, interior was warm and perfectly nice staff we did wait for two. Only one little negative was the bath was quite dirty we arrived and breakfast was excellent.

  • The location was fantastic and the hotel staff was incredible. The service was very considerate and our room had not been turned down. The restaurant was very good.

    The parking after 9pm was over a half mile away, the dirty towels were not replaced after the first night.
