I have just tried to book a family room at this hotel for two adults, two year old and four year old and was informed due to health a safety reasons they would only allow one child in the family room, what exactly would they like me to do with my youngest child, how ridiculous

The room that was allotted to us was very old and run down looking. the room carpet had a musky smell and the toilet was not... More

I first stayed here about 4 years ago but have stayed a couple of times in last 3 months. The hotel is definitely nothing to look at from the outside, but is very well located, at the edge of Tower Bridge on the North Bank of the Thames.

We were overall disappointed with this hotel. The rooms are ok, and classic in style. Staff on check in and check out were very helpful. But what ruined the stay for us was that when we needed something to eat when returning to the hotel in the evening the only thing available was room service. We were with friends and... More
