Breakfast was good and staff very helpful and peasant couldn't do enough for us Location was great everything we want to see was with walking distance

Service and excellence

Pros: Service, location, heritage.
Cons: Air conditioning in the lift, and a bigger gym, some of the rooms are old, to be renovated.
Location: At the back of the Buckingham Place, cannot get a better location than this, yet quiet and peaceful.
Great service and attention to detail. Staff are what make a hotel experience so good.
