Beautiful hotel. Exactly as we would expect. Charming, friendly, well trained staff. We had 2 lovely meals in the Indian restaurant, Jamavar, where we could watch the chef cooking our food. When we left they gave a lovely "Bon Voyage" cake. Apparently they are opening a new restaurant in Mayfair, London next month. They should do really well. The Spa... More
