    Great stay, breakfast a little disappointing

    Very quiet due to Covid. Welcoming reception staff, clean and comfortable room. Plenty of toiletries and towels supplied but only 1 tea bag! There was no buffet breakfast due to Covid so it was order from the table. Juice and coffee refills were not offered. The food was nice but they didn’t really understand how to do boiled egg and soldiers :-) location was good, opposite Blackfriars tube station and right next to the river. Lovely pub opposite as well as a Tesco Express and a Sainsburys Local both very close by.

    superb place to stay

    It was an wonderful experience at Crown plaza hotel. Even in this Covid time time hotel was well prepared. I felt quite safe and secure there. Staff were very friendly. Location of the hotel was so good that I can’t tell you. Tube station Blackfriars was next door. I would use this again and highly recommend to others Overall 10/10

    Excellent stay !

    Hotel was spotlessly clean. All public areas are clearly marked and reception desks have plexi glass barriers. When I entered the room – I could smell disinfectant, everything was really really clean. Breakfast can be served in a room or in the bar (I went down to the bar). Staff wears masks with visors, social distancing nailed. There are stations everywhere with disinfectant wipes and liquid pumps. I felt safe there and would recommend it to anyone.

    My daughters and I had a recent trip to London and stayed at this hotel. We were greeted with friendly staff. Check in in was quick. Our room was lovely bright and clean. There were complimentary bottles of sparkling and still water. The bathroom was lovely and clean full of toiletries. You would not need to take anything with you as they even had toothbrush and toothpaste. The hotel is located across the road from Blackfriars underground which is perfect for all amenities. Also Blackfriars has a direct link to Gatwick airport. I would definitely stay at this hotel when visiting London again and happy to recommend

    Lovely hotel,not so lovely food.

    Room was very clean and comfortable, however TV worked intermittently. Breakfast was very expensive for a buffet style,and was very dry by the time we got it. Room service was prompt but again was disappointing,and they didn't have everything on the menu.
