A fantastic hotel with heritage and prestige. Much of the old world feel has been kept with upgraded features. The bed was so comfortable, room a little small but I was in there to sleep so that didn’t matter. Always appreciate the coffee machine, more hotels should have them, instant coffee just doesn’t fit it any more. Would be great if Nescafé or the Brassey switched to bio-degradable options for their pods.
