Lovely old British style hotel with outstandingly friendly staff . The lounge area is a delight and Darley's restaurant was superb. Minor negatives - tissues in the room appear to be single ply and very thin and tea and coffee orders in the lounge were slow or forgotten!

Great location near the Three sisters. For the hefty price tag they can definitely upgrade the rooms and pillows. Nonetheless it has a lovely feel. The spa is beautiful with a dry sauna, a steam room and a jacuzzi, unfortunately males and females are separate, which kills the romance.
