We chose this hotel because of its proximity to Eurostar as we were traveling to
France the following day. Also I was curious to see the interior of this magnificently restored Sir Gilbert Scott building.
We were not disappointed with the restoration which has preserved a splendid example of high Victorian architecture. As we walked up the splendid staircase, I marveled at how fit
Victorian ladies must have been as it is quite a climb - this was a wholly voluntary exercise!
Our bedroom was however completely 21 century, well appointed and, extraordinarily for such a central location, totally quiet.
We decided not to eat in either the Booking Hall Brasserie or the Gilbert Scott Dining room as they both seemed so noisy with poor acoustics that magnified the rattle of crockery and clash of cutlery. The menus however looked quite good. There are lots of reasonable places to eat in outside on the station concourse, where we chose Carluccios.
The bedroom was large, furnishings good and the comfort of the bed simply excellent. I woke up feeling as though I'd slept under a swan's wing so cocooning and comforting was the bed.
