Stayed here for 5 nights when I was in town on business. Very good building, plenty of history and richly decorated. The food served is great (whichever meal of the day), and the staff are welcoming and friendly. The rooms are a little dated, but acceptable. Good toiletry selection and excellent wifi signal to continue with business. The gym is very well appointed and I always found it a great place to work out. Even tho it officially opens at 6am...I have been in there around 5am (I was on UK time), and it was ok. There is fruit / nuts available to guests which I always appreciate as snacks. Excellent. All 5 star thus far.
The not so great: I was in a room next to the alleyway. The 5.30am trash collection is not cool. Sometimes they seem to be using the bins like steel drums. Now I get why there are ear plugs in the bathroom! Don't like to use these...so had to suck it up. Half star down.
Not so great part 2: this is a private members club with a hotel attached. One member asked me who I knew as I was staying there! Slightly pretentious in this place. In fact you are informed of the dress code when you arrive. Jackets and shirts must be worn virtually everywhere. If no jacket they will lend you one. I was told off 4 times for taking my jacket off in the bar and also for putting my jacket on the back of the chair at breakfast! You are also reminded not to use phones etc in the corridors or rooms, bars etc. only in your room. Feels a bit up tight at times...
Overall very nice...but the private member aspect can be stifling...but very nice place.
