Spent one night here with family visiting family. Staff very welcoming and professional. Everyone we encountered walking around the hotel greeted us politely and made a point of communicating verbally. Rooms well appointed with a good range of quality toiletries. Beds soooo comfortable. The outdoor courtyard is a delightful and restful place to while away an hour or two with... More

This was a very nice hotel. The room was nice, not too big and not too small. Nice bathroom with perfect water pressure, a big deal to me! There was no view from our window but I wasn't in London to look out my hotel window. The hotel is walking distance from the majority of things to see and do.... More

The hotel is set in a magnificent Victorian/Edwardian cluster of buildings and equipped with staff that mirror a bygone age of service. The room we had may have been at the top of the shop but was large, comfortable, clean, well appointed and with air conditioning that worked (I have lost count of the rooms I have been in where...

We booked a classic room, but at check in we got upgraded to an executive room. The room was very spacious and nicely decorated. The bathroom was spacious as well. Our room was above the entrance to the hotel on the street side. Although there isn't much traffic during the night, having the window open is not an option. However,... More
