      • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

      As expected

      The hotel is very dated and it smells in the lifts, corridors and rooms, which they tried to cover up (badly) with disinfectant. The bathroom mirror light failed to work and when we called reception we were informed the soonest maintenance could attend would be the next day. Too late, we'd checked out by then. Thankfully, we were there to rest our head only. The breakfast and tea was insipid; service very poor. Room lacked any warmth or atmosphere at all! Overall a poor choice of hotel, but I guess you only get what you pay for!

      Not the best...

      Oh dear...the most uncomfortable bed! Having read reviews I was not expecting the best but initially though not as bad as expected. Well placed for work and with parking so all good there. However really difficult night sleep. Was staying for four nights and offered an extra duvet to help with mattress softness...didn’t work of course. On arriving back to my room after work I discovered my door had been left open, reception didn’t really understand that could be a problem! Eventually moved room which was marginally better, although when my ordered breakfast didn’t arrive on the last day I discovered the order card had been left hanging on the door... It would seem that the main issue is housekeeping and the overall care of the place. I don’t know any other hotels where the sheet is placed directly onto the mattress or where it is deemed ok to leave guests rooms propped open after a ‘brief’ clean up. Left feeling depressed.

      Really nice hotel, great rooms. I would expect more of such a hotel regarding their breakfast.

      • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

      We liked the quiet location, room size and the fire in the lounge area. The breakfast was excellent and so were the staff. Slight problem with the hotel car park. We made the mistake of going out in the evening in the car and when we returned the car park was full and we had to park about 100 mtrs. away. The problem may have been caused by a Christmas party. Overall we had a very enjoyable stay, only 2 miles walk along the Thames to the city centre.
