This was our second time staying at this hotel and once again it didn't disappoint. The staff are professional, friendly and kind. We were greeted with news that we'd been given a complimentary upgrade (always a good start to a trip I find) and the positive experiences just kept coming. I cannot recommend the rooftop bar and restaurant highly enough,... More

I stayed here for three night in July with my three adult children for a well-earned city break. From the moment we entered the premises we received maximum assistance from the desk and lobby staff within seconds. This attitude was prevalent throughout the hotel and for the duration of our stay. Together with the excellent facilities, delightful rooftop eating area,... More

My husband and I stayed here in June. Although the amenities are top notch!!! ( Roof top pool & terrace, food, grotto pool are just amazing) I thought the room was just ok. The room was modern and comfortable but the bathroom was outdated and small. And soundproofing was an issue- we could hear everything going on in the hallways.... More

Loved everything about this hotel apart from the paper thin walls. We were jetlagged the one day so slept in but the cleaners in the next rooms woke us up and it was so loud. Other than that we were really happy with the hotel. One the best we've stayed in and we've stayed in a lot :-)

If one of the team can not help you with your request they will immediately find some one who can. In room service, catering and... More

It is in a perfect location and is a stunning boutique hotel with all the amenities of a 5 star hotel. We took advantage of the beautiful spa and treated... More
