We had our wedding here in May and I can not prise this hotel enough. The staff are very professional, and cannot do enough to help you. We stayed in the hotel for two nights and the rooms were just fad. I got ready for the wedding at the hotel and had the biggest room, with two large double beds,...

I just want to let anyone planning a stay in this beautiful hotel to avoid room 105 at weekends. The noise levels late at night are unbelievable! We did complain to the duty manager at 2.00am and were offered a nitecap as a means of resolving it! There is no way this level of street noise should be tolerated in...

First visit and will be back. Everything was brilliant, the room, the cocktail bar and cocktail menu, the jazz bar and restaurant, the spa, the staff. Top notch. Would recommend in a heartbeat and would love to go back someday. Next time though it has to be for longer, one night just isn't enough.

Was treated to a few days holiday. From we entered the hotel till we checked out was wonderful. The building speaks for its self but the staff were the icing on the cake. Only complaint was not enough space to name all the staff on the hotel response. Nothing was to much trouble . Message to kitchen staff, does it...

The place is wonderful staff very good. But I had a complaint about the shower being dirty. I was told it would be sorted that night. I returned and someone had turned the bed down. In the morning I noticed that the shower was still very dirty with a substantial amount of mold on the tiles. I got an apology...

We really enjoyed our stay at the merchant. I took my hubby away for his birthday & we were 100% impressed with the treatment we received & attention to detail. The staff are well trained, no job is too big. We will most definitely be back & we have & will be promoting the hotel to friends & family. 5...

Stayed overnight with dinner and breakfast included. Yea it was grand and meal was satisfactory but not worth all the money. Wouldn't return as Its not for me. I'd sooner stay in a quaint hotel with a log fire than a pretentious hotel that lacks substance.
