I know this hotel well already so it seemed a natural choice for our wedding venue. We were delighted from start to finish with the customer service. Lauren was our wedding planner and nothing was too much trouble. Always on email/ phone and got straight back to me. Anneka was there on the day and was amazing. The day itself...

What a FAB Boutique Hotel. Stayed 2 nights for a wedding and it was exquisite. Breakfast, lunch, dinner all excellent. Staff amazingly friendly and informative. Bedrooms/Suites are very individual with roll top baths and separate double showers. Beds are comfy and generally we could not fault it. Hotel is ideally located for shopping and restaurants/bars/clubs

Amazing venue for a corporate function on 3rd floor and roof terrace. space was fantastic and the roof terrace was ideal for the smokers and when you needed a break from the dance floor. Food was great and the hotel rooms absolutely beautiful

Fabulous venue for our daughter's wedding reception. Hotel staff were so helpful and friendly. All aspects from drinks reception to the wedding meal and evening celebration were faultless. The bedrooms are large and extremely comfortable. This hotel is absolutely first class and we wouldn't stay anywhere else. A memorable occasion equalled by the hotel and the staff

I enjoyed the hotel and thought the staff were very good. I did not like that on the bar tab they listed an 'optional service charge' of 10%. When I asked, I found that the service charge did not go to the employees. One said to me that it was the first place she had worked that did not distribute...

Stayed over night to attend a family wedding, the wedding was held on the top floor terrace, far too cold for a January wedding, limited seating inside. Rooms very spacious each having a mezzanine bathroom. Drink prices were high in line with the standard of hotel.

What a beautiful afternoon tea. My mum and I have tried many and this has to be one of the best. Beautiful surroundings, wonderful cakes and fantastic service.
