The Savoy is beautiful, quiet, comfortable, ideally situated and a great place to stay. It could be better, however, and a little attention to a few details would make it outstanding. Its history is fascinating and it provides a haven from the polluting, honking traffic. Slippers and dressing gown in the rooms, plus a bath, would make a big difference, but the most frustrating aspect is the slow or non-existent service - the bar was seldom staffed and the food takes a long time to arrive in the dining room.
Do go, but make sure you take slippers at least, plus plenty of topics of conversation, or a good book while waiting, and be patient when 4 requests for a glass of water are all ignored.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Ensconced high on a rising hill, the Savoy Hotel sprawls over six acres of landscaped gardens, offering colonial style cottages that were built between 1834-1865. Colorful flowerbeds merge to form a multi-coloured quilt around the cottages, adding to their gentle refinement and old English Charm. A quiet retreat, the Savoy Hotel offers a little pocket of paradise. ... more less
