Southbank stay
Reception staff were excellent. The bar fantastic and the room wonderful. The waiting staff at breakfast could have been more professional, the food was not the best either.

Good 6.0
Have had better visits
Under current COVID-19 No breakfast in dinning area, only grab and go breakfast delivered to your room every monrning, same every day we were there (Bannana- Orange juice- yogurt-croissants). Main restaurant closed, Mondays and Tuesday. Somewhat disappointed on this visit for three days, currently at another hotel doing a much better job durning these difficult times.

Great location and would recommend as good location for accessing lots of London. Excellent service and all Covid health and safety measures were good and unintrusive.
Natasha, gb1 night trip with friends
Good 6.0
It was a good experience but not exceptional at all!
Sno, gb1 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
Overall the stay was amazing from arriving to leaving, the reception kindly let us check in two hours earlier and kept everything easy to understand post Covid especially. The Service all round was brilliant if you ever need anything during your stay you can simply message the reception. They’ll complete that request in a timely manner. I only had one downside to my stay which was the breakfast, Post Covid Breakfast is delivered to your room and left outside your room for you to collect. A group of two people received only 1 Pain Au Chocolat, 1 Banana, 1 Yogurt and 1 small bottle of Orange Juice.
Callum, gb1 night trip
Very good 8.0
Staying in the COVID time was unusual. We were very well looked after and felt safe. It was clear efforts are being made on cleanliness. The grab and go breakfast was good quality but a choice of fruit and some butter and marmalade for the croissant would have been appreciated. We will be back once the hotel is back to normal for the full experience.
Andrew, gb1 night trip
Very good 8.0
Nice and great location
Stylish, clean, comfortable bed, amazing view over the Thames but sadly not overly welcome, lacked in atmosphere and certainly didn’t operate at 5-star level. Despite COVID-times, they could do so much more. Great area though right on the South bank which was busy and vibrant with lots of restaurants.
