Very good 8.0
The room was lovely, the food at the pub was lovely, the bed was comfortable. My only issue was the very loud noise from what I think was the air con unit from the room below me. I could feel the vibrations from it lying in bed so made for a rough nights sleep. Other than that my stay was nice.

Quirky individual treat
Loved this little place - wanted somewhere within walking distance of the O2 and this didn't disappoint.Took us about 8 minutes to get to the O2 Quirky rooms individually furnished with dark painted walls with a mix of traditional and contemporary pieces - a real treat. A little expensive but would definitely go back. Breakfast delicious and the Sauvignon Blanca we had in the bar before the concert was divine.Staff friendly and was with my gorgeous friend and we laughed all through our stay.Highly recommended!

A jewel with all you need by the 02!
This pub/hotel is the perfect place to stay if you are going to the 02 for anything. It is very well situated with parking and the rooms are quirky but comfortable. Despite being near roads, it was quiet and the rooms well appointed. The pub has a lovely garden, large terrace and inside is large but with spaces that provide quieter, intimate areas. The breakfast, which is included in the price, is very good with much to choose from. I didn’t have other food at the pub but what was being served to others looked very good and nothing was left on the plates, which was a good sign! I thoroughly recommend this little jewel.

Good 6.0
Rooms were noisy, floorboards very squeaky in our room, could here footsteps from the room above thudding sound from the minute they woke up, needed window open to stop bay window misting up, this caused the room to smell of cigarettes as the patrons smoked below outside the front of the bar area

Cosy and convenient
The Pilot is a great choice. Downstairs are an excellent pub and restaurant with a lovely terrace and beer garden. The pub closes at 11pm, and the area is not busy at all so you’ll still get good rest. Breakfast was amazing in the morning. Convenient to LCY and North Greenwich station. My room was clean and the air conditioner was a welcome bonus. Would definitely stay there again.
