The location is genius and the proximity to everything is unbeatable. You can actually walk to most attractions and many official buildings. Lovely but standard breakfast no creativity but reliable English hearty one to start a day, especially a cold one. Rooms have been renovated and they are clean, comfy and modern but some are rather too small. The beds... More

This is a very clean hotel (the housekeeping ladies are really great) in the very heart of London. Easy access to Covent Garden, Soho, theaters, Westminster and many others. Good Wifi facilities and very attentive staff. I found the breakfast expensive and I booked only the room.

We loved a lot of things about this hotel except for a few minor things. First the good, excellent location. I can't say enough about its location. The hotel is just next door to the National Gallery and walking distance to a lot of London sites. You're just 5 minutes to 2 tube stations - Charring Cross and Leicester Square.... More

We stayed there the last 3 nights and had a wonderful experience. From the moment you arrive they make you feel at home. The staff is courteous, professional, very friendly and full of information.

I took a friend here for tea. The spread we had was wonderful!!! Fresh sandwiches and delightful cakes and tarts with champagne!!! My friend loved. The smell of the hotel was wonderful!!! Lovely staff who carried my son's pram up the stairs. This is my second time here! Would definitely come again!

The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. We were given a room for disabled as I advised that my wife has a problem too many climbing stairs. The room was large and well appointed. The bed was huge and very comfortable. The bath room is designed for wheel chairs so some of the features were more suited to a disabled... More

Would really struggle to find anything to complain about this hotel. From the moment we arrived, every single member of staff was helpful, polite and welcoming. Must give a special mention to the Spanish bar man who put up with us on Saturday night....going out of his way to procure milk so we could have extra tea in our room.... More

An amazing and beautiful hotel with considerate, polite and accommodating staff. Greeted promptly and politely, booked in easily and all questions answered in a friendly manner. Room itself was 10/10. THE comfiest bed I have EVER slept in with soft bed linen (not starched beyond belief!) The bathroom was clean, neat and as high standard as the rest. Quiet location... More
