This is a special occasion type of restaurant but I didn't like it. No complaints about the food but service was stuffy and it is too expensive for what you get.

The Witchery's reputation proceeds it, and if you're looking for a restaurant for a special (and pricey) meal, I can't think of a more distinctive one in the city. I dined in the Secret Garden room, which was beautiful.

This is a very unusual hotel that has very exclusive rooms looking like they are out of a fairytale.

The Inner Sanctum is where Michael Douglas proposed to Catherine Zeta Jones. This is a very beautiful room as you can see from the photographs with an out-of-this world bathroom.

They also have a five star restaurant which is booked up months in advance.

The Witchery is full of antiques and looks like something out of a Harry Potter film.

The very small winding staircase might prove difficult for some people as you need good balance and eyesight to manage them. Stepping up the staircase feels like you are about to enter into a storybook tower from a magical fairytale.
