    Tasteful and comfortable - friendly staff

    1) Having to pay for WiFi 2) 5% service charge for the room 3)lack of tea-maiking facilities in the room (The first two are small and simply gave a sense of being milked - a sort of budget approach which, although I tend to approve of Ryanair's use of it, didn't fit with what I expected from this kind of hotel.

    My wife and I enjoyed the position of the hotel, quiet but very central to the shopping we enjoy, also the standard of the cuisine was excellent, beautifully presented and very tasty. Shall visit again.

    Our bedroom was in need of a makeover to improve the facilities and appearance.

    The room we stayed in was looking rather tired, it was not as good as the rooms we had had on our last two visits

  • Single
    9.2

    The staff are friendly and professional and the hotel is small enough to feel 'at home'. The rooms are comfortable and what pleasure to have proper hangers in the wardrobe and a hairdryer that is not fastened to the desk drawer! The location is great for shopping - between Harrods and Harvey Nicks - and it's not too noisy at night.

    I noticed a couple of things that I would change/improve (such as the net curtains are not on a rail so if you open the window, you can't pull back the nets and there is no magnifying mirror in the bathroom), but nothing serious enough to stop me from staying there again.

    excellent attentive staff at all times whether at front door or dining room

  • Older travelers

    We were dissapointed with the old bathrooms and toilets which had seperate cold and hot water fauccits which was difficult to use and impractical . also the location of the toilet seats next to the walls made it difficult to use the toilets . The shower was old and in need of renovation . Being a member of Small Luxury hotels of the world , we expected the hotel to have better bathroom facilities . We reduced our stay to one night instead of four and moved to another hotel which costed more .

    This is a quiet, discreet hotel in a fabulous location. The staff are excellent and very helpful.

    The rooms feel a little cramped (too much furniture in a small space perhaps?)

  • Single
