We loved the beautiful room and immaculate gardens. The tulips were beautiful. The lady at the front desk at arrival was so helpful and polite. The beds were so comfy I slept through breakfast.

Our room was obviously a storage area created into a room for people who booked through a third party- after complaining, we were given a suitable room. The entire premises requires a major cleaning and painting- very sad to see a beautiful building like the Ainslie going to rack and ruin.

Very pleased with the hotel. Was very clean and the staff was very professional. Only thing that bothered me was the third bed sofa, which was rather uncomfortable. Breakfast was very good!
