What was an elegant mansion has now been converted into a contemporary hotel which still retains part of it´s elegant aristiocratic bearing.
The original mansion is stunning, and it has been stunning converted. You have a distinct sense of arrival. As much as I love the conversion, parts of the hotel lack intimacy, but having said that some public areas are beautiful with their double height ceilings and drop dead chandeliers and original architecture.
Try to stay in the original house as a huge tower has been built, which frankly lacks any charm. However, the bedrooms are extremely comfortable in the "modern style." Great bathrooms and very comfy beds.
The gardens are the jewel in the crown. A perfect place to disconnect from the world and enjoy a relaxing breakfast, lunch or a chilled glass of champagne.
I ate in the Duhau restaurant which was very spacious. No chance of anyone overhearing the most intimate of conversations or business deal. Good menu which features some outstanding meat cuts. Nice wine bar area as you enter the restaurant. I liked the bar with its high ceiling and lovely wooden features.
As always it is the staff that can make or break a hotel. Regardless of the vast investment, they are the most important asset. The staff hear are utterly charming and happy to help in any way, and done with great grace.
So if you like the old with the new, but more of the later and like the standard contemporary feel, this is a great place to stay at a price.
