Great staff
Great customer service, amazing breakfast. Room was in basement, but was nice, if I had one to complain it would be that the corridors to the basement were stiflingy hot. But it's not much to complain about.

A great find
I bought the accommodation last minute as I could not travel home due to the bad weather. I had a single room which was ideal for an overnight stay. It had lots of style and comfort. Lots of places to eat nearby and close to the tube station. The hotel itself was lovely and cosy. Would definitely stay there again.

Mediocre - the hotel that had a different name
The hotel was called something else. Room was in the basement, and it felt a little oppressive. Shower was cold in the morning
