Great Stay
Lovely staff, lovely hotel with good facilities. We got engaged whilst staying and the hotel were great and made our stay even more special with a surprise in our room on return one evening. To be super critical the room itself was a bit tired, few burns/stains on the carpet and sellotape on the ceiling from previous decorations. Overall we had a lovely pleasant stay and couldn’t fault the service.

Best hotel I've stayed at in London!
Brilliant hotel that was very welcoming. Excellent text messaging service for queries if you dont want to go down to reception with very quick responses. Great left luggage system. Lovely reception and pool area with a large sauna. Staff all very friendly. Room was spotless and had everything you could possibly need especially loads of charging points. Spare third bed also very comfortable. Only downside was that if you wanted breakfast it was very expensive at £18 per person so we had to go out for breakfast. Everyting else was brilliant.
