This is an historic hotel in an historic location - newly refurbished and brought up to the standard you would expect in a Waldorf Astoria hotel. This means there are luxurious touches and flourished in the decor and the furnishing - all set within this old, listed building.
We parked ourselves in the car park around the back of the hotel. Reception was very efficient and welcoming. We were upgraded to a suite (Room 160) and were impressed with the spacious bedroom and separate sitting room. The only disappointment was the shower over the bath rather than a separate shower which you often get in suites at this level of hotel - but that is just a personal preference.
Dinner at the Brasserie was very good - with particularly impressive and efficient service from the delightful waiter - and delicious authentic Brasserie good which we enjoyed.
