    Staff were great , room clean and very comfortable. Pre paid breakfast was varied but full English was poor quality and rather tasteless.

    50/50

    Check in was quick and easy. Our room wasnt ready, but we were able to leave our bags. On our return we were given the keys to our room. I requested a high floor / quiet room. We were situated on the top floor, with amazing views across London. The room itself was clean, bed comfy. The shower however was pathetic! No plug for the hairdryer by the full length mirror - must have been designed by a man ;) Breakfast wasnt great. We were asked to choose from the buffer whilst the server served us what we required. No choice of eggs, and the scrambled egg was virtually raw. Toast and condiments were forgotten and had to be requested. I appreciate there are guidelines during this time, however, I think there are ways the service could have been made better. That said, the location is fabulous. and for this reason, I would return.

    Disappointed this time.

    This was our 3rd visit to the hotel. Sadly in this occasion we were very disappointed with the room. The hotel was very quiet yet we were allocated a classic double on the 12th floor. The room was very small, barely room to walk around the bed. The shower was tiny which wasn’t helped by a very badly placed hand rail. I’m of average height snd build but struggled to shower as I kept banging my arms on the wall and handrail. The furniture was scratched and shabby. Given we have always had a lovely room in the past we were somewhat surprised by the standard of the room. It’s a shame because the hotel staff and the common areas are lovely. The hotel is ideally situated for all the usual attractions.

    Good hotel poor breakfast

    Room good, bathroom little small. Service excellent but breakfast was a big disappointment- £45 for toast, an apple and a mediocre English breakfast.

    Clean, comfortable and great location. Bed was huge and comfortable. The box breakfast could have been better, there was plenty of it but the croissant was stale and banna was chilled.

    Great area

    Brilliant locale and quiet (apart from Friday night clubs). TV volume in room could not be heard or altered and pressure of flush and shower were poor, but not to the extent it was worth mentioning. Room was 1411 and had some of the best views we have ever gad of London skyline.
