Very good 8.0
Love but not as slick
Love the hotel. Had a few room and cleaning issues. Not as slick as when it first opened... but I still love it.

Very good 8.0
Wonderful Building but A Mixed Bag
Beautiful building and great location. Mixed responses from staff, some really helpful, others disinterested. Such a comfy bed but city single room very small. Had to have my room changed in the night due to noise of what sounded like an exhaust fan. Bloody Mary included in breakfast was great but overall continental breakfast was not worth the money. Lovely toiletries but replacement of water each day was haphazard. The real plus is to be in that magnificent building.

Fabulous hotel and staff.
A beautiful hotel in a wonderfully restored heritage building. Very friendly and helpful staff without being patronising. Nothing is a problem to them. It’s the thoughtful little touches that make it such a delight to stay there. Very comfortable room and bed.

Covid made it feel 4 Star
The rooms felt more 4 Star than 5 Star - a bit better than before the upgrade, but not as luxurious as normal 5 Star. I assume the lack of toiletries, robe, slippers, chocolates, nice cushions etc is because of Covid? If so, it would be worth a little note in the room to tell us that. The young man who carried our cases was lovely, a real asset to the hotel.

Superb Dog-Friendly Stay, Extra Hygiene Measures
We had a fantastic stay - the team was extremely welcoming and always ready to help (without being too much and whilst keeping distances which made us feel reassured but also not too strange in these strange times), the building and facilities are stunning (rooms very comfortable, clean and gorgeous, plenty of space to keep safe and distant, hand sanitizer and extra measures, loads of history too), we had a lovely dinner at the restaurant (food was superb) too... We loved how welcome our dog was also made and that dogs can go to a lot of places in the hotel and are well taken care of too by the staff (the room had a bed for him, bowl and treats). A perfect place to treat yourselves. Thank you to everyone in the team for a much needed staycation, the only problem was that it was too short... We will be back!
