I have stayed here many times for both business and leisure. Thre old-world charm that harks back to a bygone era has become increasingly difficult to encounter no matter where in the world you find yourself. Properly trained staff, excellent cuisine and spectacular afternoon teas are a given. The rooms and suites are typically large, usually with extremely generous bathrooms. Although breakfast is not what it used to be, it is still very good. the main heated pool and gardens are stunning and really, everything is as it should be for a hotel of this calibre. Unfortunately, it is not near the sea, but the mountain views offer some compensation. Even if you're a guest, you still need to book for the afternoon tea [have at least one during your stay] and the sunday lunch. If you prefer a highly modern hotel with crisp lines and loads of glass, stay at the Westin or Radisson instead. But they won't remember your name and make you feel nearly as welcome as The Nellie.
