Building is beautiful. Guest room walls are paper thin and at 1:00 AM i had to ask to be moved to a different room due to loud arguing in the room beside mine.

Dear Kross, We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed our very special building. I sincerely regret the inconvenience you experienced as a result of the noise from guests occupying nearby rooms, causing disruption to your rest and relaxation. We do have a Quiet Enjoyment Policy to ensure that all of our guests respect the comfort of their fellow guests and our Security Officers do their best to maintain quiet enjoyment, however, it is evident that we failed to do so in this instance. We hope to welcome you back again soon, Sincerely, Marion te Winkel Director of Operations

So enjoyed our stay

The room was lovely and spacious. Great set up. Beds were extremely comfortable so had wonderful sleeps. Thoroughly enjoyed high tea at Zoe’s. I did not want to leave.
