Great stay
Karen, gb1 night family trip
Very good 8.0
It has the potential to be good.
We stayed here for the night and the location is good. Very central and easy to get around London from here. Room was a decent size however I would say it felt unclean. Walls were marked, carpets unclean looking. Looked out window straight into office block. Part of the reason myself and my boyfriend booked the hotel was for the rooftop bar. We arrived, and left straight away. Staff came across very rude and obnoxious. Was not very welcoming place to be. Would be fine if you were dressed in a skimpy dress and heels in a massive group of girls I’m sure they would be more than welcoming and helpful. The hotel itself physically is nice.

Fair 4.0
I have previously stayed at the sea containers hotel, and was so impressed that I came back. However following the service I received from the moment I arrived to the moment I left - I would certainly never stay again. The staff were very rude, abrupt and unhelpful. The valet wouldn't take the car as he thought there were no spaces. I booked three rooms at the same time in advanced of the evening. And the hotel staff placed us on all different floors, when I would expect they might have thought as this is a group booking, we could be placed together. The hotel bar staff were so rude it almost ruined the night. We booked a table for 7 people, and after a couple of hours a lady told us rudely that we will need to leave the table soon because there is a minimum spend if we want it for over 2 hours. At this point we had already spent £600+ and the mimimum spend was only £25 per person per hour. I tried to explain this to her and she rudely dismissed me. I then walked over to her and asked again if there is any way at all that we can stay at the table, being that we had 3 bottles of Champagne that were open, as well as several dishes of food on the table. She proceeded to get the manager who was even ruder and told us that we would need to find somewhere to stand. I was asking him how we can stand with the bottles and the plates of food and he rudely said I dont care, I need the table back as I have booked it to someone else. Overall this spoilt my experience.
