We have stayed here in 2008, 2010 and now 2012. We really must go more often!
This time we had a room on the front (7) which faces the road, having had a room overlooking the garden on the back on previous occasions. We were a little concerned about the noise, but it turned out not to be a problem, even with traffic queuing for some temporary lights. The room was well appointed, and had everything you could want - a very welcome addition was the hospitality tray, which we thought a strange omission when staying previously. Tea / Coffee delivered before breakfast to your room and a free shoe cleaning service (leave your shoes outside your door when you retire) are much appreciated.
Service throughout our stay (3 nights) was very good, and staff very friendly, although many seemed to change daily.
We ate at Monty's each evening and were not disappointed - the kitchen is shared with the Terrace Restaurant, which is the main Michelin starred restaurant for the hotel. Breakfast was excellent, with a great view over the garden as well.
Overall a very enjoyable stay. Will will be back before 2014 !
