Excellent location of the property. The temperature in the rooms was overbearing with heat, even with the aircon on in the room. Went down for the cinema times and was quite rudely ushered away as they had a private function. Seems that the hotel was more concerned about external hiring then their own guests. Also, again it seemed there were very limited spa appointments again, external guests of the hotel seemed to be a priority.

The staff were very friendly and professional! Always insisted on carrying our bags. The room was great! And the hotel was very unique.

Great, but also busy

My only downgrade is the fact that I never got to try the bar because it was constantly booked out. Also the deposit is enormous. Other than that, amazing!

Convenient, comfortable, mediocre service

Slow, inattentive staff in the restaurant took the shine off a good hotel stay in London -- irritating lobby music, but that may be my age showing.
