The breakfast was lovely, lots of variety and good service. The room was comfortable. Could do with a more thorough clean - eg the radiator looks like it has thick dust in it, and one bed had a hair in it. Generally fin

Non-existent access to TV news.
I thought the room was adequate and clean but I hated the fact that the TV in the room did not provide BBC NEWS or SKY NEWS even though this was advertised on the screen menu. Some of us like to watch TV news on a large screen. There were no Freeview channels either. Only crap stations nobody wants. It may seem like a minor fault but when you are travelling alone a TV that works is a necessary requirement.

Very poor
Had to change room as room was not suitable. Then only 1 power outlet was working. No full length mirror. Beds were always moving. Woken up at 7.30am by drilling and hammering. Breakfast only served by 1 member of staff, not even offered tea!

No air-conditioning and dirty showers.
The view from my window was a wall and another room with the lights on and curtains open so I had to keep my curtains closed. When I got to my room the air-conditioning did not work and there was nowhere to find the number for reception. No list of phone numbers or anything in the room so I had to go downstairs to speak to someone and was told that the air-conditioning was broken which is why they left a heater in my room. I told them that I was feeling very hot and they said sorry they couldn't do anything about that but I could open the window if I needed to. The showerhead was so dirty I dare not have a shower as I didn't want that mould and filth on me. Not acceptable at all.

Theatre break
Booked the hotel as we were in London to see a show. Hotel was in a fantastic location for us. The staff all seemed very friendly and helpful. The room was a fairly good size for London. It was very clean and had everything we needed for an overnight stay. The bed was very comfortable and we slept very well. No view from the window, but only paid for a standard room . Don’t read negative reviews As this was certainly not our experience. We have stayed in many hotels and this was definitely not poor standard.
