love this hotel
I tried to tell the door guy I now live there, he didn’t buy it. I didn’t want to leave at all. My man was completely in love with the sauna. This hotel is glorious! Don’t miss out on eating there either, I had my birthday breakfast there and I couldn’t have asked for anything more amazing. So comfortable and clean and an exceptional location. They free upgraded our room to Art Deco and we had a terrace over the street and flappers on our doors! The bathroom was amazing.

Historic Charm
The immediate neighborhood is full of pubs, shops and great restaurants. The Hotel can seem confusing in layout, but it actually adds to its historic charm. Do NOT miss high tea in the ‘Great Room’! While admiring beautiful woodwork, the Owner came by and offered friendly help and info.
