Impossible to resist the title, and it was a lot more Jekyll than Hyde to be fair. The positives are its wonderful location, its fascinating history, its sheer romance. Add to that its very good food (and an amazing value deal in the dining room for its 125th anniversary -though I pointed out it was only 124 years actually!),nice dining room and a very civilsed12 noon checkout and it makes for a great place to visit. A few negatives worth noting: the absolutely freezing air conditioning in the dining room- so cold as to to almost spoil the meal since my wife had not been prepared for Arctic temperatures, unless we had the wrong South Georgia.The hotel is also a little faded, but it did not stop us from having a great sleep in a comfortable room after a good wander in the warm November night air- a damn sight warmer than the dining room! It is a bit pricey and there are various extras, such as a resort charge (what on earth is that- for God's sake be honest and just add it on to the room price, since that what it is). However, minor quibbles for what is a really worthwhile place to visit and indeed support.
