    5/5 Excellent

    Great gem in Charlotte Square.

    Lovely quirky boutique type hotel but with all you'd expect from a top hotel, namely first class Spa and swimming pool and great food and bars. Oh and fantastic location. Will be recommending and we will be back.

    Absolutely gorgeous hotel with great staff and so much attention to detail. Love the social hour in Kimpton hotels, absolutely loved the decor throughout the entire hotel, the breakfast was fab and the tuck box in the room was a nice touch. Will stay here again!
