    I forgot my iPhone 14 (hence expensive) in the taxi I left the hotel with. The Concierges James and Francis checked the videotapes, found the license number and got my phone back. 10 out of 10 Stars for James and Francis.

    Lovely hotel. Classic luxury. Very clean. Not tired whatsoever as I saw in a review when booking it - quite the opposite.
  • Michelle
    Room was a little dated, but it was charming, spacious and clean. We also had a large bathroom. The location is great, as it is near the main walking shopping street. We had an early flight to catch so we didn't have time to take the breakfast,...
