Melton Mowbray, United Kingdom
Reviewed 27 August 2016

Tranquil haven in a bustling city where your requirments are anticipated at every turn by thoughtful staff who's only concern is your wellbeing. The room' s luxurious, the food to a gourmand standard and the facilities overall are second to none. If you never returned home you really wouldn't mind.

We arrived for two nights a The Residence, coming from NYC and going to Luanda, Angola. We were suprised at the level of hospitality and congenial atmosphere of the manager and her staff. We booked one room with an extra bed for our teenage son, but as the occupancy was low, the manager decided to give our son a room...

It began with having a driver pick us up at the airport. He had a welcome letter and water waiting for us in the car. We arrived late and they sent room service up to our room. We ate pizza while we were in our own private jacuzzi. We thought we might leave the next day to explore the city...

My title is unfair as The Residence is almost worthy of being a destination in and of itself. I have stayed here on three occasions and can't properly praise the property and its staff enough. Special thank you to Warren who oversees a property with exceptionally high quality of rooms, cuisine and amenities including the stellar pool. Give this man...

I have traveled to every continent (save Antartica) and visited many of the world's greatest cities, and I place The Residence as my favorite hotel in the world. It is class in every sense of the word. From the welcome we received by Warren and the many (very talented) staff, our one night stay started off extremely well and only...

This is my third visit at The Residence and it gets better every time. Attentive service, well appointed rooms, delicious food both breakfast and dinner and excellent spa. You have the feel of home away from home. Looking forward to my next visit.

I stayed at this hotel for one night only. I wish I had reason to stay longer as it was a very enjoyable experience. Their attention to detail, their service and their lovely luxury boutique accommodation is excellent.
