Studio room was gorgeous. Great view, clean, luxurious. The spa bath was wonderful. Restaurant below the hotel was easy, friendly and good food. Not much in the way of vegetarian but the chefs were willing to make me something that wasn't on the menu. Staff friendly, good value for money with the winter saver. We'd definitely return and book in... More

Had a lovely nights stay in a wonderfully appointed room with a fabulous bathroom, all very lovely, the one downside of the room was we were above the restaurant so got woken up earlier that we would have liked by the noise from there. Also there was a little miss communication with our reservation at the beginning, we didn't get... More

Our House bar is small however it does lead to the outdoor courtyard where we have a lovely outdoor fireplace for guests to enjoy.

Spent the weekend here for a 40th birthday with family. The rooms were clean and spacious, although we did have a one-bedroom room (the bathroom was huge with a great spa bath). Location was fabulous and Milk and Honey restaurant was divine! The free newspaper in the morning is a lovely touch. Also went to the Globe Theatre for a... More

Rooom was lovely - we stayed in a premium studio. Staff were approachable and helpful. Only comment we would make is that the bed (while lovely and warm) are very firm and could be better with some sort of topper.

Dear Di100 Glad you enjoyed your stay in the heritage suites and yes the one with the gas fire is perfect for these winter evenings!
