My partner and I stayed at The Berkeley on the 6th of October. We were greeted so warmly, and then shown to our room which was absolutely stunning. We had dinner in the hotel, which was delicious and a great portion size. We were also brought breakfast to our room the next morning, which was lovely and relaxing! Our hosts... More

We had a few pleasant drinks in the bar before collapsing onto the softest bed ever and sleeping soundly for the whole night. After a lovely cup of... More

We stayed here for one night but it is unrecognisable from the hotel website or other reviews here. The hotel was closed and locked up despite advertising its restaurant as being open all day. It is basically a handful of rooms situated beside a car park. The advertised cooked breakfast did not exist. You were given a so called "continental... More

Spent a lovely night here recently with my husband. We had reviewed this hotel before we came and some of the reviews weren't so good but we found it to be clean, comfortable and well situated.
