We decided to stay here for my wife’s birthday in mid January. 2 nights in the Lord Provost suite was never going to be enough especially for our first visit. Firstly the staff are outstanding, not at all stuffy for such an opulent hotel. They’re somehow always there without being intrusive, and they obviously take pride in their work and the hotel itself. So friendly and helpful. Next, the hotel is one of the most comfortable we’ve ever had the pleasure to stay in. We lost count of how many drawing rooms there are and each of them individually furnished and decorated whilst preserving the amazing heritage of the property. The hotel was quiet on the Sunday evening so we had the chance to view each of the other 4 suites. They’re all fabulous, unique and I wouldn’t be disappointed with any of them. Finally, the food and drink. Well, the wine list isn’t going to leave you wanting, and if you can’t decide what to choose I can recommend leaving the choice to Kamil, the Maitre d’. And remember to leave room for the after dinner drinks as the Cognac selection is the best I’ve seen. The food is lovely and the chateaubriand was prepared exactly how we requested it; rare. We’re looking forward to our next visit
