My wife and I booked in for two night (Sun and Mon) and were amazed at the size and luxury f the room. We dined elsewhere for various reasons but would be keen to sample the restaurant menu when we return, which we most certainly will!

A one night stay in room 21. All in all I would've rated this place excellent, except for two problems (first one minor, second one major). Firstly although when booking I requested a quiet room as we are both light sleepers, our room was at the front of the building facing a noisy road. Fair enough, as these requests are... More

Dear CD555, I'm so sorry to read your review on your recent stay with us here at 21212. We set the bar very high for ourselves and are hugely disappointed if things are not perfect. It is seldom things go wrong and if they do, it is generally circumstances beyond our control as was the case in this instance, The... More

Everything about our 1 night stay at the 21212 was lovely. I booked the hotel months before as a surprise for my partner's 30th Birthday. We arrived at the hotel at around midday to drop off our bags -and were back at the hotel by 3pm to check in. The location of the hotel is about a 20 minute walk... More

We were offered champagne on arrival which we accepted even though it was mid afternoon. A good start to our stay in this beautiful hotel. We had room 2 overlooking the garden. Well designed with a huge bathroom containing a walk-in shower (almost a wet room) and a large bath. Having two sinks is definitely a bonus. This hotel is... More

I'm so glad you enjoyed it all. It is a very peaceful location and we are lucky to have such a lovely house. Please do feel free next time to ask for what you like and if we can do it, we will! We most certainly have had plain yoghurt in the kitchen. As they say if you don't ask... More

I went with my son to celebrate his good grades at University. The meal was stupendous. A limited but exceedingly well executed menu. I chose the fish option. My son went for the red meat options. Each plate was a piece of visual and culinary art. The dining room set the scene for an atmospheric out of this world eating... More

The rooms at 21212 are beautiful. They are luxe, thoughtfully put together, extremely comfortable and conveniently located above the gorgeous 21212 restaurant. The bathroom - HUGE bath, lovely array of spa-quality toiletries, plenty of huge soft warm towels. Bliss. The bedroom was well laid out, with a small sitting area away from the bed, and plenty of wardrobe space. The... More

We had an excellent stay here on a Saturdy night in March in room 1. From the moment we arrived we received excellent service. All the staff we dealt with could not have been more helpful - pats on the back all round. The room was outstanding for a UK city centre establishment - very large and well laid out.... More

We have stayed twice at 21212 in different rooms both superb, the whole building is spotless, it radiates luxury and opulence. The staff are wonderful friendly and warm. The restaurant deserves it's star, perfection on every plate. Paul is a very, very clever chef. Celebrating a birthday doesn't get much better than this. I'll be choosing my treat in September...

Bit of a late review but I stayed here August 2010 in a very nice room at the back of the hotel which had an amazing bathroom overlooking the gardens. The room was very large with lovely furnishings and the breakfast was excellent. Would definitely recommend.
