The band is very good! And the service of the person serving us is tops! Wine may be expensive but you also get endless supply of different varieties of nuts, and the staff service is very good.

Cosy and clubby bar like an old English gentleman's club. Great service and cocktails. Excellent ventilation so that the air is fresh and not at all smoky despite the cigar smokers best efforts. They have a good deal on drinks before 6pm too. Excellent selection...More

Great bar atmosphere and snacks for friends to enjoy. The whiskey drinks are top shelf and at the average bar price. Plenty of booths to relax in along with the scenery.

Dark, elegant and cozy. I love this place and am regularly in it. Drink choices are wide and varied and the place is just wonderfully decked out. Almost always full so you know there's something right about it

The hotel reminds me of an olde version Rolls Royce . Got all the extras but a bit outdated and still gives a fantastic ride . The services and staff need special mention as with them one can overlook the vintage interior. ( new carpets...More
