We stayed in the Augustine last night and from the moment we arrived, we knew it was somewhere special. The charming Doorman spoke impeccable English and whisked the car away whilst the efficient receptionist seamlessly checked us in. The reception area was beautifully furnished, very laid back and opulent.
Our room was relatively quiet except for the the faint rumble of a tram and was beautifully appointed with a spacious hall and bathroom. It was not cutting edge but really comfortable, quirky and far away from sterile hotel rooms. The room was full of lovely touches with great books, comfortable furnishings and beautiful decorations such as cubist vases. It really was very special and suitable for the discerning traveller.
I am fussy about beds and pillows and the provision at the Augustine ticked all the boxes. It is a long time since I have slept for nine hours but the comfortable bed and immediate replacement of my non feather pillows (unfortunately not so forth coming in other hotels) worked their magic on me.
Finally I was so impressed with their attention to detail - it was my birthday and they noticed (no one brought it to their attention) so when we returned to the room, there was the most fabulous chocolate and fresh fruit cake with "happy birthday" waiting for me. This type of gesture makes a great impression and is indicative of the service and care provided by Augustine. I shall be back!
