Would stay again, but....
The staff were friendly and made checking in & out easy. The room was small, but very comfortable, clean & warm. Unfortunately, there were road works going on outside which made sleeping difficult also as they were short staffed they were unable to offer any room service for food after hours.

A disappointment
Haven’t stayed here for about 12 years. Decided to treat ourselves as we were having a rare trip to theatre without the kids. Room was dark, windows were taped closed and got no natural sunlight. We were next to lifts with a fire door the other side of the wall which banged loudly from early hours. Despite being told we do not need to book breakfast when we arrived it felt an effort for them to get us a table. No staff could help with dietary concerns. The staff really let the place down unfortunately. I would not call this 5 star to be it’s the staff who really make your stay but they seemed really inexperienced and didn’t seem to know their hotel. No one was rude but no pleasantries either. We will not be returning

Ideal spot
Return visit to RHG hotel after 10 year gap. The entrance and public rooms are excellent. Our Thames view room was still lovely but on the seventh floor might have been an obstructed view because of tree foliage in summer. Unfortunately there was construction work on the river just across the road. This was noisy between 08.00 and 17.00- but this is a city. Service although polite was not always the most efficient. We will stay again it’s ideally situated.

Good location. Amenities are lacking for a “5 star hotel”. Probably should have a 4 star rating. Overall nice hotel but there are much nicer nearby.
