I visited the city for a business trip and the hotel was really great. Although it is outside the city by about 25 km but it is worth it. It has great views on Quaroon lake and the hotel furniture has a great vintage style,loved it !

Antique hotel. On the lake. Rooms are antique too but too old with almost no renovations. Food was poor. Almost no activities except the boat in the lake and it wasn't working well too. Was OK for one night. Other hotels were mainly in the past the king's palace but are but more luxurious than this one and more renovated...

I was shocked when I arrived as this hotel has got an extraordinary reputation since 40s. The lobby was very hot and humid. The restaurant has small variety either for breakfast or dinner. On breakfast you can have fresh bread every other day. The air conditioner in the rooms is not working probably. The toilets are not regularly cleaned up....

This hotel is still keeping its authenticity, The decorations , furniture , paintings . Even some worn out polish of the furniture gives the old authentic touch of a hotel that was the target of the famous movie stars as well as politicians like Churchill who still has a hall named after him The only draw back is the low...

Traditional & Classic Rooms with very old TV not Screens. You should ensure the View or you will get a View on the Roof of the Building, that is really awful. Food is Tasty & Resturant Staff showed Hospitality. Pool with no Heater & during my Stay it did not Work.

They managed to keep the old furniture , the old light systems, the curtains, the carpets. I loved the view of the lake , the gardens and the...

The hotel is a historical one and really unique but unfortunately the bad maintaintanance loses its value. It was bad to see people smoking everywhere in the hotel with no rules. We also had few problems with the cell phone coverage in the rooms & there was no wifi service. The staff was friendly. The breakfast was nice but my...
