my partner and I went away for the weekend to spend quality time together...quality was the key word. At the welcome desk the reception staff couldn't do enough for us and we were taken to our room by a member of the team. the reception lobby has been renovated since the last time, and although I have to say I loved the big staircase from the previous deco r, this was absolutely gorgeous.as it was two weeks before Christmas, there were scenes made out of gingerbread which looked brilliant. On the Saturday we went into the bar and had cocktails which were delicious before heading up to the club lounge for drinks and canapes. The service in there was second to none as usual and we were made to feel like royalty. the hotel is central to all emenities and has a very welcoming atmosphere throughout the hotel and bar. I have never slept in such a comfortable bed, it was like leeping on air. Breakfast in the club room was brilliant and tea and coffee with shortbread/mince pies were available all day...amazing. I would definitely recommend this hotel it is the ultimate in luxury.
