Whilst we did not stay at the PPH, it certainly exudes old world charm. Had cocktails in the garden on one evening and in the inside bar (which is a total time warp) on another. Certainly not cheap but well worth the visits. One of...More

This bar oozes class and history. It has been restored beautifully to its former glory days from the 20's and 30's, really, really beautiful, one could expect any minute to see Agatha Christie or Hemingway to walk in for a drink. I will highly recommend...More

This is a wonderful example of a turn of the century bar. Atmosphere is casually elegant. Service is friendly and precise. Specialty drinks should not be missed. You can just imagine Agatha Christie enjoying an absinthe here.
