Beautiful hotel in a good location.
Stayed here when meeting friends for a birthday dinner. I requested a quiet room which was allocated and perfect. We were in fact upgraded to an extra large room which was a great birthday treat. From check in to check out the service received from all staff was top class. My husband and I have stayed in many hotels in the UK and overseas and we both commented on the excellent service received.

Great doormen needed.
Beautiful hotel in a great location with nice restaurants and attractions near by. Disappointing that residents are told they have to wait over an hour for a table in the bar. Reception staff were very welcoming however the doormen looked like they couldn’t be bothered and were more interested in smoking, definitely not like other 5 star hotels where professional doormen are the start of the whole experience.

Highly Recommended Hotel
Excellent location, room was small but comfortable. Staff were very helpful. Only slight complaint was that the room was very warm and the aircon was noisy which kept me awake.

Our weekend in London
Our two night stay was superb and the service almost matched the 5 stars. Staff were very helpful and accommodating, so 5 stars to the staff. The only minor piece of feedback was a shower over a high bath. We would certainly book at this hotel again and recommend to friends.

Fantastic hotel
We booked a superior room but were lucky enough to be given an upgrade to a suite- wow absolutely superb. From the staff on reception to the comfort and cleanliness of the room everything was spot on. Only wish we had booked for a longer stay.
