    The key to our success is our attention to detail. Michael and Eliot ensure they meet with each prospective organisation and key booker well ahead. The purpose is simple:

    • Get a great understanding of needs
    • Ensure a perfect match to the organiser’s needs
    • Ensure continued contact leading up to and during the event


    I hired the Brasserie room for a party for my mums birthday. From the first meeting with Nick and Elliott to the party day everything was great. The food was excellent, the room was lovely. Family also stayed here, highly recommend this hotel for stays or private events.
