Fair 4.0
Disappointing service
A reasonably nice, small hotel but with very poor service throughout or stay. To start with the service in the bar was dreadful, It took more than 45 minutes to get our first drink (after asking several times) and then when our food arrived we only had half of it, they then took another 10-15 minutes to get us the rest. Very much over priced for what we had, £115 for an average bottle of wine , glass of wine, bottle of bear an one lot of canapes. The room service was not much better, on an evening it wasn't too bad, but breakfast in the room was dreadful service. half an hour late on two occasions and on the one they only delivered half the order on another they charged almost £100 for 2 English Breakfasts, which we didn't get a bill to sign until we checked out. We did complain at check out and they did deduct the charges from the bill, but I'd prefer to pay the full price and get good service. The room was reasonable, not very big, but clean and modern, We had a terrible view overlooking a side street and a massive pile of rubbish, which never got moved. There are much better 5 star hotels in the area, Plus it's very much over priced for what you get. I'm sorry to say it's the worst 5 star hotel we've stayed in, you should expect a great deal more from a 5 star hotel in London.

Beautiful hotel in a great loction has a nice boutique feel to it, you could easily pay twice as much for a lesser hotel in this area.

Good 6.0
5 star with a 4 star service
Overall i was very happy hotel is in a brilliant location with loads to do all nearby hotel was very clean and well maintained staff also very helpful all up until i had checked out at that point i felt as the porter wasn’t too happy that I didn’t tip him because he had brought my car out to the front after i had already paid £55 for valet parking. Once i had checked out i was waiting at my car for somebody to bring my luggage but after a short while it seemed that nobody was coming so i had to go back inside to reception to collect all the luggage myself and then struggled to open the door with all my luggage as the porter wasn’t interested in helping overall a very disappointing end to such a lovely stay. Just to end i was going to tip the porter once my luggage had been loaded in to my car.

A couple of nights in busy London
This hotel largely upgraded has some lovely rooms & faculties albeit pricey. Very well situated. We were lets say unexcited by dinner -Not much of a menu & rather slow service.
