We got a good deal on this hotel and stayed in a fab room, possibly termed a suite! It was Room 316. A lovely surprise when we saw the four poster bed. The furniture was antique and the bathroom, lined in marble, with jacuzzi bath and rain shower, was huge. You could read about all the famous guests who had stayed in the hotel and imagine them right there in the room, as the furniture and decor may not have changed in all that time! As well as that, the room overlooked Eyre Square, which gave the impression of looking down on the whoel world beneath! Another opportunity to look down on the world is afforded from the hot tub perched on a limb outside the spa - but actually the view is not pretty. The hot tub was too hot!!
The hot stone massage in the spa ticked all the boxes! The therapist, Claire, was really good.
Our deal included dinner. The service was very good, but the table d'hote menu is not exciting. We ate well though. The best part was the dessert; a nougat ice cream!!
All in all for the ambience, and the friendliness of the staff I would certainly recommend this hotel.More
