The hotel is full of history and character - its exterior was painted pink and white to celebrate the end of the First World War. Be sure to ask to see the colonial-era Sherwood Room and Churchill Writing Room. There are contemporary features, with nearly half of guests staying on business.


Facilities include two heated outdoor pools and a 24-hour gym. There are tennis and padel courts with lessons available from a pro coach. You'll also find a spa, hair salon, business centre and boutiques.
