From arrival to departure, you are treated like royalty. This really is a world class hotel. We were here for our honeymoon and would not have wished for anywhere else. Thank you to all the wonderful staff for making our stay so perfect. We do hope we may return and enjoy your warmth, sincerity and charm

As LHW members my wife and I were upgraded to a junior suite (room 101) - so romantic and beautiful! (and offered a very late check out - THANK YOU!). The public rooms evoke Versailles. Breakfast was outstanding...
