Superb 9.2 From 1,285 reviews

Good 6.0
Hotel was great, great location and staff were helpful however to pay £80 for a breakfast each day and to be told at reception the breakfast room wasn’t open due to covid and that we had pre made breakfasts (that after the first day we didn’t even bother to take) was a bit of a pain, £80 for what seemed like a primary 1 school lunch isn’t exactly ideal when your sold a buffet style fry up breakfast on your pictures and google? Still waiting on someone getting back to me

Suheil, gb4 night trip
Good 6.0
The room was nice the service was a abit slow upon check in. I had received an email from the hotel prior to my stay saying I could check out at 2pm for £20 extra, however when I asked when I got there I got told it was going to cost me £60 extra with was disappointing and frustrating.

Comfy beds good location.
Visited during COVID so restricted service however hotel bedroom was nice, reception very helpful, one of the most comfortable hotel beds I've used recently, and convenient for the underground which was next door.
Kevin, gb2 night trip
Fair 4.0
Broken air conditioning so moved 2 doors down to a room with a view of a tree. No access to rooftop bar as was privately booked up and told it’s owned by a different company but yet it’s advertised pretty much as their main attraction with all the pictures etc. doesn’t clarify anything about the seperate companies at all and no heads up before the stay that we would have no access to the rooftop. Told we were upgraded out of good faith, wasn’t upgraded at all. 5 star staff very kind, manager non existent, hospitality from manager non existent. Wouldn’t stay again. If looking for a romantic stay I suggest you don’t either.

Can’t wait time return
We checked in late on and the staff were so friendly. Really chatty and helpful which is not always the case in hotels. Very impressed with the room and bathroom. Staying again next week and already can’t wait!
Maria, gb1 night business trip
Very good 8.0
Not bad for a one night stay
Parts of the room needed fixing, wardrobe door was difficult. A few fixtures and fittings had seen better days, but clean, view was lovely, and bed was comfy. Service was reasonable too !
