Highs + Lows

  • The service is impeccable. The team is sincere, helpful and genuinely wants to be there.

  • The restaurant is particularly good.

  • Views to die for!

  • Great little cocktail bar.

  • No access to spa or gym.

  • There is not a smoking area. No heater or ashtrays so smokers must puff away at the front of the hotel.

  • Pool/Gym

    No.

  • Restaurant

    Yes. A brand new menu by Mark Jarvis is a must!

  • Bar

    Yes, cocktails are superb, but wine list (book) is a little intimidating.

    Sure, although I’d leave them behind for a bit of peace and quiet.

  • Price

    Expensive, but worth it.
