We stayed here last week for business. We were in room 5 a large bay window'ed room with a large queen size bed as well as a day bed - perfect if traveling with a child. The room was well decorated and appointed, a brilliant shower and lovely large bathroom - the entire Edwardian hotel is lovely; tastefully and sympathetically decorated. Breakfast was delicious each morning and the staff were all very helpful and friendly - especially the lovely cook who made breakfast each morning and went out of her way to check in to make sure that everything was to our satisfaction. I had just a couple of little niggles: wifi wasn't great and kept disappearing mid file download - so annoying for business and, I struggled with the kettle; it wasn't cordless but really needs to be - it was a struggle to get behind the drawer unit to plug it in and/or unplug it and when it was finally plugged in the cord was too short to actually pour from it, so I moved I over to the other side of the room where there was a more easily accessible plug. A cordless kettle would address that issue easily. I'd definitely highly recommend and definitely hope to return to this lovely bespoke little hotel.
