A real eye opener!
The first room we were given was right beside the station entrance and we could very clearly hear a female busker on the street. Had she been able to sing it might not have been a problem but not only could she not carry a tune in a bucket she also had an amazing repertoire of two ‘songs’ - When the Saints go marching in - and Flintstones, meet the Flintstones. Absolute drivel and like Chinese water torture! After five minutes my husband went down to reception and negotiated an upgrade away from this busker. We moved to room 330 which was much quieter even though it fronted the Strand. The staff are lovely, friendly and helpful and the breakfasts were delicious even if the cooked food wasn’t really very warm. Great coffee! Would we come back? Yes. They left a bottle of champagne and a stunning birthday desert platter for my husband - still not sure how they knew! This hotel is so central, I remember it being the Charing Cross but never imagined staying in the lovely Victorian building. So happy I found it on

Very convenient location if travelling by train and for visiting London's west end theatres and restaurants. One night stay in the hotel only but bed very comfortable and room was clean with all essentials. My wife prefers a bath to a shower (room had a shower) but otherwise hotel very good.

Great location
A lovely comfy bed but could have done with a bit more space in the room as the tub chair and table kept getting in the way of the mini bar.
