The property is well located but seems to be undergoing modernisation, the lifts are being updated/repaired raking out half the service and causing huge delays, there was a large event on, and the bar was understaffed with inexperienced and slow staff, the rooms are ok we received an upgrade to club but really nothing special for the price, breakfast was very poor quality cooked food

The property is in need of refurbishment. The heating temperature in our first room would not go below hot, so we could not sleep properly, then the toilet handle broke and we had to move rooms. To add to our problems, when we got back after a long day our new room key would not work. Staff are great and the food is good but our visit was spoiled.

Clean and pleasant room, friendly staff, very convenient location. However, long walk to the lifts which quite often were not fully in operation and the ones that were in operation were frequently crowded. Accordingly, there was often a five minute wait for lifts and there was no option of taking the stairs.

Brilliant location for West London. Very near underground station. Good facilities and staff helpful and friendly. Only downside was the size of the bed. It was just a standard double.

Rooms need more storage space for clothes. There were no drawers in the room. Housekeeping checks could be better. The toilet seat hinge was broken one day but not noticed. However, when we reported it, it was quickly fixed.
