Stylish Hotel in a great location.
Brian, au5 night romance trip
Exceptional 10.0
Fantastic view and location
The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. Loved the bed and pillows (I know everyone is different with things like this) I paid for and got an amazing view of the river and the London eye. The room service food from the restaurant was excellent and friendly service. The bar was nice to have a cocktail in! The hotels location was perfect. Easy walk to everything: parliament / Big Ben 10mins, Buckingham Palace 20mins, Trafalgar Square 5-10mins. Lots of food options nearby and to get to Piccadilly Circus and Leister Square was another 10mins from Trafalgar so easy to walk to. Train station accross the road from the hotel. Lovely garden infront of hotel and the river Thames is accross the road from there. Fridge in room with complimentary minibar. Only small negatives : laundry service expensive, heating not the greatest in the room, very poor tv channel selection (no cable channels for a 5 star hotel!), and internet kept disconnecting itself (had same problem with another hotel under the same group) I enjoyed my stay here and can't wait to return.

Very good 8.0
Great location, close to all of the main attractions. Staff were pleasant,but a big thank you to the restaurant staff who were outstanding, very helpful and attendant to all of our needs. Only downside our room did not have any type of view except for a brick wall, but our room was lovely, beds very comfortable and the complimentary mini bar was also a nice inclusion.
Vicki I, au5 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
Nice hotel but needs a face lift
Great location, very friendly staff and upscale presentation in the lobby. Rooms are dated, in USA it would be 3.5 star level. Carpet had stains, broken fixtures, etc. Would stay here again because of hotel location and great service.

A Perfect Hotel
We loved this hotel. The location was fabulous in every possible way, the service was impeccable (they were lovely and helpful when we shortened our stay by a day for personal reasons), and our room was quiet and comfortable and quite large.

First class service, with a smile
Beautiful hotel, stunning location & first class service! From the moment you walk through the door, you're greeted with a smile & made to feel welcome. Room was superb with a river view. Everything you could need was provided. They even added little cakes & a birthday wish for my husband. Will definitely stay again!

Great Hotel
Great location. Hotel has a comfortable and naturally classy feel about it.
Philip, gb3 night trip
Good 6.0
A hotel feeling its age
The location is good. The hotel has seen better days and is being run in a cost-cutting way. The interior is looking tired. The mattress was lumpy but the staff did respond to my complaint and improved the mattress for our second night. I would not plan a second visit.
