CHARACTER & STYLE
This place evokes the romance of train travel and the grand hotels of years gone by, with its low-lit reception, wide marble staircase, lofty ceilings and honey-coloured wood panelling so loved by the Victorians.
Service is always willing but can be haphazard, and information can be hard to come by, so it's worth checking the hotel's website. Luckily there is always a concierge available who will help you out and generally make things happen.
