We booked the Duke for a weekend away and I must admit it wasn't initially our first choice but when you book a hotel on a wednesday for the Friday....well don't expect much choice!
I have to say we were pleasantly surprised: the hotel was easy to find, a parking permit was handed to us on arrival and we parked the car in front of the hotel. The staff was really welcoming and we really liked our room (quite old fashionned but very comfortable and a change to the modern hotels we usually stay at).
We used the restaurant on the first night and although the food was delicious the atmosphere was quite cold and formal and lacked 'personnality'. I have to stress I had the best dessert ever (chocolate cake with homemade ice cream and white chocolate mousse) and I am still talking about it to this day.
I had read comments about the lack of elevator but we did not think it was a big deal and the staff will help you if you need to.
All in all I would recommend this hotel and would stay there again.
