    Great Hotel but poor customer experience

    Very poor experience when checking in. Couldn’t find the booking, don’t know if that was an issue with their systems, or something when booking via One of the rooms they gave us hadn’t been serviced and when reported it was as if they didn’t believe us without being shown. Checking out also an issue but that would take too long to detail. For a hotel at the premium end of the market, overall a poor experience and would think twice about staying again.

    Disappointing Service

    Booked the Hotel for the Cocktail bar as we were arriving with clients after an event so wanted a late drink, We arrived just in time for last orders 11.15 had not bar snacks left as not had delivery. Staff started clearing the tables ready for daytime at 11.45 with main lights coming on straight after chasing us to pay bill before we had finished drinks. Was told we could go to lounge area to get a drink when we get there this was not the case no night porter so we had get drinks from our rooms minibars and bring them down. Room was tiny and really not worth the money. Good location but thats about it would not stay there again,

  • 8.0.Very good

    Excellent hotel but room for improvement

    Overall the hotel is comfortable with sizeable rooms (for London) and distinctive decor. The level of service in the hotel is excellent for most of the hotel especially in reception and the breakfast room on the lower ground floor. The exception regarding service is the bar, where the service is dire. 5+ staff and only a third of tables occupied and it still took 20 minutes to be served. Too busy preening and chatting to serve customers.

    Perfect for theatre trips

    An overnight trip to London with a visit to the theatre in the evening. The hotel is an ideal location for theatres and Covent Garden. All easy walking distance. The hotel has a beautiful Art Deco style bar and lounge. The room was clean, comfortable and very quiet. Good pillows too! All staff were friendly and helpful. I hope to stay again soon!

    Great staff make a great hotel.

    Lovely hotel, very convenient to shops and Covent Garden. The food is excellent, we tried the soup and then the curry both of which were very good. Service was very good too. The main bar gets busy and can be a bit slow but all staff are very pleasant, front desk is excellent always helpful.

    Super place very convenient.

    Beautiful hotel tucked away off Tottenham Court Road. Reception was excellent, very helpful. Rooms are lovely and the studio we stayed in very spacious. Small dislikes, weren’t able to fit us in for a meal due to refurbishment and showers on the 7th floor are really slow, hardly any water coming out, so took ages for my wife to wash her hair, ok for me as I’ve hardly got any hair. So these need looking at or adding a pump for power to the shower. Otherwise super place and really convenient for Oxford street shops and going out in soho and Covent gardens.
