I treated my friends to help me celetrate my 60th birthday we had a fantastic time we found the staff to be friendly and attentive. The champagne was flowing and the afternoon tea experience was delightful. We were able to chat at ease in a comfortable and relaxed setting. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon.

Joao is very helpful, polite and nice person. The overall service was very good. I think it would be good to have more sandwiches and less cakes for The Afternoon Tea. Overall service was very good and it was brilliant atmosphere. Highly recommended for anybody interested to attend for The Afternoon Tea experience.

Excellent afternoon tea with attentive service. Flowing champagne and very yummy selection of sandwiches, scones and cakes. Our group felt that we were very well looked after and a great time was had by all. Thank you

Stayed here for two nights. Lovely hotel with pleasant, friendly staff. Nice, decent size bedroom with a very comfortable bed plus a good size bathroom with decent shower (over bath). Fabulous evening meal in the restaurant on the first night - I had the sea scallops, lamb chops and creme brûlée. For me though the cooked breakfast absolutely nailed it......

Stayed at this hotel for a theatre break and from the minute you walk through the door you are made to feel very special. The staff were extremely polite and helpful, the rooms were perfect in every way. The location is great for the theatres just a 10 minute stroll from The Palace theatre and all the bars and restaurants.

We stopped here for a drink when friends stayed at the hotel. The lobby bar is very quaint, the drinks were superbly served, the staff very attentive, and even table snacks provided. It felt very grand indeed. Definitely a nice place to spend some time. We briefly saw the restaurant, and that looked nice too, but we didn't try it.
