The grand entrance to the Hall is ideal for reception drinks and leads guests up the elegant staircase with its ornamental bronze and wrought iron banisters, striking marble walls and crystal chandelier. From the stairway, guests are led through to the Main Hall, which is the very essence of grandeur and opulence.
