Nice stay but parking was extremely impossible and expensive

2/10 Poor

Terrible - Avoid at all costs
We arrived late after some travel disruption and wanted to order some room service. We ordered a pizza(that's all we could get at the time) and a bottle of wine. It turned up to the room 40 minutes later and was a frozen pizza from iceland. We had also paid for a river view room and got a room facing the other have of the hotel with maybe a 10ft gap in which you could see the river. The following day, the hotel lost power and water while we were getting ready to go to dinner and a show. My wife left with half of her hair curled and I got to have a shower in the sink with a bottle of water. We complained and the manager told us we would get a refund and to contact hotels.com to arrange. The following morning, we did that and headed out to Wembley for an NFL game. On the way, the hotel called to let us know we had missed check out (even though we had another night booked) and threatened to take everything out of our room or we needed to pay for another night. I spent the whole day on the phone between the hotel and hotels.com trying to get it sorted out. The breakfast was also poor. Unbelievable that this place is supposed to be a 5 star hotel. Also FYI, £50/night deposit on arrival, bar shuts at 11, weird signs stating no more than 2 people in a room after 9PM.

2/10 Poor

Treated family members to a stay at the hotel for 3 nights and had to pay a deposit on arrival of 50GBP for them, which would be refunded on my card. I never received it back. My family members thought the stay was so so. The decor is dated, with plastic banners put up. It all was very disappointed. During the last night there was a technical issue setting off tvs in the room, causing a lot of noise around midnight. Someone came to look at it and brought in another guy to try and find the source and silence it. It then happened again around 3am. Same story again, however this time the 2 said staff members were fighting in the corridor basically making it impossible for my family to rest. Upon check out, my brother complained at reception about the incident and was given compensation for the night. At no point was mentioned that the deposit was included in the compensation given back to the guests and not to me as the cardholder. I spoke to the hotel, as I am the card holder for the booking and the deposit, but am not being given my deposit back.

Good but…
The staff are lovely and the room was excellent and the view out on the Thames would of been amazing but the windows were so dirty you couldn’t see anything. It spoiled the ambiance of the room a great deal
