Every single aspect of our stay this time in Feb-March 2015 was perfect - exactly as it had been on three other occasions over the last 15 years. It is a supremely relaxing venue, and offers luxury in an amazing... More

This a lovely, grand hotel, in a central location. The atmosphere is buzzing and friendly, and it seems to be quite popular with the locals. The breakfast is good, but not great. The restaurant is great and the food awesome, the bar is buzzing and always full with hotel guests and locals. The problem was, my room key never worked,... More
