Amazing service, great with our dog! Our second stay and one of our faves. Room 307 not our fave as quite small and the layout means air con blows directly on to bed! Was hot without (in january). Black/green stuff came out of the taps in to

Angela, gb2 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
It is a truly beautiful hotel with amazing attention to detail and very helpful staff. A little corner of heaven. My only disappointment was that, having been upgraded from the room I had booked, I only had a shower rather than a bath and as the room was bigger I found it colder.
MISS JENNIFER, gb1 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
Lovely friendly hotel. Staff appear to be very engaged in the business and they are very good at making you feel like part of the family.
Richard, gb2 night romance trip
Exceptional 10.0
We loved every minute of our stay here. From the moment we arrived we felt very comfortable, welcomed and at home. The staff were so attentive but not at all intrusive. The bar area was very intimate and cosy and we enjoyed an excellent martini after our return from a charity night. They just couldn’t do enough for us. This is now our “go to” hotel when we need to stay in London.
