It’s not for me
Brief visit to London with friends to see Ed Sheeran at Wembley. Took a risk on this hotel in an unfamiliar area as it came up as 5 star at amazing price for two rooms for two nights. Nothing really wrong just not what I expected. Very odd position. Heart sank a little when walked into reception. Very strange decor. Check in ok. Room huge but smelt very odd almost mouldy. Very hot. Floor to ceiling windows but facing onto courtyard where everyone comes and goes so had to have blinds fully down the whole time. Corridors very dark with a strange amount of libraries Bed comfy. Bathroom very large. Everything clean but just a bit tired and business feel rather than 5 star luxury.

Not 5 Star
Toilet leaked so couldn't sleep. Kettle didn't fit under the tap. Shower either boiling or freezing. Charged 20 quid for room service fish and chips, worse than a Weatherspoons. Nowhere near 5 star quality.

Hmmm wouldn't stay again
I definitely don't think this is a 5 star hotel, it's strange because it seems to have a block of flats above it! The room was okay, a bit small and not a great view (we had a chink of a view of the river, so possibly the more expensive rooms have a better view). The roof terrace closes really early which is a shame. On a more positive note the staff there were fantastic, and the shuttle service from the station is a nice touch.

Very Good8.0
Good value. Ideal for who?!
I liked this property and I may well use it again. It gets some things right - price was good, room was spacious, parking fee reasonable for London. But it can´t get away from the fact that its location is poor - 30 minute walk to nearest tube (they operate an excellent free shuttle), nothing of any interest nearby. Some of the staff were excellent, some appeared to be oblivious to guests. IT worked well for me because I had business in the area and if you want to be in this exact location at reasonable cost then book it. Otherwise........I´m not sure who this hotel would appeal to.
