My wife together with myself and my daughter were lucky enough to be guests at The Residence, previously the Chinese consulate, in the prestigious suburb of Houghton. The experience was similar to staying at a fine country house on the weekend after being invited by people we didn't know well but really liked. The genuine nature of the staff, their pride in the hotel and work is readily apparent. The owners are charming and the attention to detail amazing. I see the Residence as an experiment delving back into a past era of personalized service and charm , far removed from the modern hotel experience. It is well worth the stay for that reason alone but the rooms restaurants pools and ambiance are there in spades as well
