  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

We returned to this hotel after an exceptional experience last year. It’s like an oasis in the middle of the City. We felt it had gone off a little this year. Reception and restaurant were still fantastic but pool service and afternoon tea service weren’t great

  • Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Brilliant setting in well manicured gardens with a choice of well serviced pool areas. Food and drink is superb although service was fairly hit and miss. Excellent at times and slow others although we did visit at the busiest time of year. Staff were very friendly and the rooms were spotless each day. Would definitely recommend and look forward to returning.
