I stay here once a year when working the London Marathon, so I can't comment on the hotel when it is in normal operation, as the London Marathon I am sure adds a significant amount of pressure to the hotel, which actually they deal with very well. The main parts of the hotel are quite nice. Restaurant, bar, lobby area.... More

Arrived at the hotel for a two night stay on a Friday around midday. The room was not available until 3pm but they were quick to relieve us of our luggage and the concierge was quick to set us on our way with lots of advice, bus tickets etc. Terry Cayley the head concierge needs a mention because he was...

On a 2 day break and stayed at this hotel. Situated right opposite the Tower of London. Great view from our room of St Katherine's Dock. Loads of restaurants nearby and if you walk over tower bridge there are lots more in the Butlers Wharf area. I was born in London and moved just over 25 years ago so I... More

If you get a room with a view of Tower Bridge you get a stunning view. Staff are excellent, friendly and attentive. Breakfast is very good. Rooms are very comfortable and well equipped, but you can end up with one on the small side. Oh, and the lifts are quite slow!

I booked this hotel for the first time and was really pleased I had done so. Located right by Tower Bridge and the Tower of London you are right in the heart of historic London but on the other side of the hotel lies St Katherine's dock and it is like an oasis of calm in the middle of the... More

I was here for work, and stayed at this property. I was pleasantly surprised at its location just steps from Tower Bridge, and 5 minutes from the Underground. Rooms were impeccably clean and service was exceptional. Check-in was a breeze, and after a long day of traveling, it was nice to not have any issues. We had the buffet breakfast... More

A group of 8 of us stayed here for three nights to celebrate my friend's 50th birthday. The room was very good, bathroom good, bed comfortable, very quiet position. The outside of the hotel is a bit ugly, but the inside doesn't match. All the staff were excellent, very attentive waiters during breakfast, concierge very helpful. Breakfast was excellent if...

I had this hotel booked for me through work and was not sure what to expect. Very pleasant surprise, good reception staff and a room facing Tower bridge. Went for a walk in the morning near to the tower of London and some of the other sights. Breakfast was pleasant enough. There was no Tea making facilities in the room... More

My experience at this Hotel was great. A big thanks goes to Herandi for making our stay extra special by upgrading our room to the bridge view one. The process was very smooth and from the day of check-in until we checked out, she greeted us with a big smile. Will definitely stay here again!!

Reception & security staff extremely rude and unhelpful. Messed up a group booking for 6 rooms for my wedding day. Tried to blame bookings.com for wrong name information going to their booking system. After the hotel reservations attempted to sort the rooms still 2 rooms were not booked and all names were still wrong on checking in. All my family... More
