I had the occasion to be invited to a business breakfast at the hotel and was very impressed with the service, attention and discrete placement which permitted easy discussions. The breakfast offering was excellent and I will certainly use the hotel for further occasions.

Lovely entrance hall and good reception service. Concierge helpful with maps etc Rooms outdated (bathrooms in particular) but Clinique toiletries. Breakfast average and no view I probably wouldn't have given it a 5*
