We chose the Gresham because of the fond memories of our stays there in the past, we were not disappointed! The group was 12 for the dinner in the Brasserie and the Catering manager, his staff were really wonderful, caring and provided a service well in excess of what was expected. Our rooms were fine - comfortable bed, great shower...

We recently had a three night stay at this delightful hotel. The transfer from the airport is so easy and stops very near which is always a bonus. We were on the third floor and our room was very clean, spacious an extremely comfortable. The beds are very comfortable and there is plenty of tea and coffee in the room....

The room very dated and nothing special. When my husband said he had booked the Gresham I was excited but really it was so so. The room was also noisy with clanking pipes from other bathrooms. Heard the toilet being flushed next door. We had dinner in the bar which was very expensive for what we got. The service was...

My first time to stay at this hotel and I cannot fault the attention of the staff - they were very helpful and even upgraded my room from a standard to a delux. I am disabled and they went the extra mile - with bringing my breakfast to my table. And the breakfast was excellent - top class! The main...

Though it opened exactly two hundred years ago, The Gresham Hotel has managed to evolve and successfully combines its historic background with modern features and flair. Also, it got a significant update in the 1920, so it also has some vivid Art Deco elements. I arrived very early in the morning, before 7:00 am, and was warmly welcomed and given...

A party of 6 of us (ladies) stayed on Sat 4th Feb. We had 2 triple rooms. The rooms were spacious and the beds very comfortable. Even though there was a queue checking in it moved very fast. All the staff we encountered were very pleasant and helpful. The buffet breakfast was very tasty, excellent hang over cure! I'm already...

Stayed for one night room only with hubby. The hotel has had huge renovations downstairs and is really lovely - the image somewhat spoiled by a huge "use side doors" sign draped over the revolving door on the way in. We parked outside and got a key card for the car park which is around the back of the hotel...

Room was very nice, like the 1920ish style to the hotel and matching it with contemporary. Very spacious room and very comfortable indeed. Staff very helpful and had great respect for clients staying in the hotel. Breakfast buffet contained a very wide selection and again assisted well in the breakfast room. Room was quiet too, and could enjoy a pleasant...
