Nice hotel in a great location. The hotel was very clean and the rooms were a good size. The breakfast was amazing. It was a buffet style breakfast but the quality of food was great and very fresh. The breakfast room was lovely and really light due to the very tall windows. I would happily stay here again.

We arrived late and were welcomed like long list friends. Our room was beautiful, clean and contained absolutely everything for a great stay. Location wise it was perfect, two minutes to the tube and twelve minutes from the west end. Really good value for money and the breakfast was plentiful and delicious! A must visit!

This hotel is located in an area that has many great restaurants within walking distance. The Angel tube station is a short walk giving you access to the entire city. Recently renovated rooms are great.
