Very nice Hotel with a great view

The Hotel is very nice, clean and has a nice view. If you have a room at the front, you have a nice view to the London Tower Bridge which is lit very nicely at night. If you have a room at the back you have a nice view to the Docks. We went there for the Medieval Banquet which is less than 5 min walk away so the Hotel was perfect for our stay.

Great experience

Arrived at 11.40pm to check -in and was shattered after business meeting. Very professional staff made me feel very at home. The view from the room was spectacular. Will definitely book here for a break with my wife in the future. Highly recommended.

Would go again

My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay in the hotel, its in a good location with tube within easy walking distance. Very pleased we upgraded to a Standard Room, since a Standard Sleeper Double is a bit small for two.

Great for a weekend away

The hotel is in a lovely location. Our original room on the 10th Floor had an issue with the central heating which we notified the staff of when we were going out for dinner on the Saturday night. They dropped us up a fan but the room was almost too hot to sleep in. We notified staff of this on Sunday morning and they moved us to another room on the 5th Floor which was lovely and comfortable. Overall the staff couldnt have been more helpful and attentive.

Fantastic Stay

Only booked for one night but suited my purposes wonderfully. I paid extra for a Tower Bridge View and it didn't disappoint, especially in the evening. I won't lie it is expensive for 1 night but the location of this hotel made my stay all the more special to be able to sit by the river Thames and enjoy the night air. London by night is truly a sight to behold and as a londoner I forget what is on my doorstep. Sometimes its nice to stop and take stock, even if its only for one night.
