St Katharine's is a wonderful and friendly place with great staff and a warm welcome. I'd happily stay again any time. The rooms were comfortable and the breakfast was plentiful. I've really nothing negative to say!

We stayed overnight whilst attending an event in Limehouse dock, and were amazed to find such a friendly welcome and seclusion so close to the city and Canary Wharf. Very handy for the Docklands light Railway but very quiet, everywhere was sparkly clean and fresh, and there is everything you need (unless you can't manage without a TV) plus of... More

A perfect place to relax after 8 hours work at the London Boat Show. A great continental buffet breakfast choice set us up for the next days' work. Good free WiFi too, fast, with a very simple log--in system for a change. Lovely staff . . .

We had a nice ground floor twin room with wet room. Plenty of cupboards, even in the bathroom, and a good-sized desk. Good heating system. Nice quiet place, no need for a television in our opinion.

If you are not mainly in London to do nightclubs and sprint through shops… than this is the place. The location is beautiful, including a serene garden. It’s friendly, quiet and just to top it off – offers a brilliant breakfast service. This is a highly recommended stay whether you are on business or pleasure.
