...we asked each other, after entering the hotel. The reviews we had read prior to booking were so positive, the description of the hotel so extraordinary, that we were rather surprised by the actual reality. From the outside the hotel does look very charming indeed, with its "Georgian elegance", as they advertise it. But unfortunately, what works well from the outside, the quite beautiful appearance, does not work inside the hotel at all. To me it seemed more like a worn-out, old-fashioned guesthouse. It was not at all the classy environment I was expecting. After we had been given our key (which was attached to an absurdly disproportionally big wooden key fob) we climbed up several flights of stairs to reach a tiny, slightly smelly and stuffy room - which looked more like a servant's room, a hundred years ago. After we complained, we were given another room - which was bigger and a little less stuffy. Still, the whole interior of the hotel, particularly the rooms, could desperately do with a facelift - everything seems old and creaky, especially the bathrooms need a proper renovation.
The only outstanding aspect of this hotel is its fabulous restaurant, the food was without a doubt the highlight of our stay, it was truly excellent.
Unfortunately, that won't be enough to make us want to return.
