The location, staff, food and accommodations at the Riverbank are mostly commendable, with poise and aplomb openly displayed in a friendly manner. I counsel being careful to ascertain the location of your room, as the rear is just above the railway and our room window in 2006 was on a central air shaft, facing other rooms. Breakfast was provided, and... More

We stayed one night in a standard room at The Park Plaza as we were attending a function at the hotel on Saturday night. We parked in the hotel car park which is small and under the railway bridge a short walk from the hotel and we were slightly concerned about security but it seemed to be well fenced and... More

Stayed here for 2 nights, very much enjoyed our stay, the room was modern and very clean. There was an iron burn on the carpet and the room was quite small. Breakfast was very nice and well cooked. Drinks were expensive but thats London for you! Staff were very good and obviously well trained. Happy weekend!

The hotel isn't in the best location for the tube, but there are plenty of buses about. The rooms are big, with strange orange lighting (which you can turn off), clean and comfy. The staff are all friendly. The noise of the trains in the back rooms is muffled but audible so if you're a light sleeper take ear plugs.... More

My wife and I have just come back from a weekend stay at the hotel. When we arrived we were greeted by very friendly staff and were immediately informed that we had been upgraded to their 5 star accommodation at no extra cost. The room was'nt quite ready for us so to compensate for the inconvenience, (which was minimal), we... More

Nice public areas and a friendly concierge and a smart looking room were all a good start. The room was at the back of the hotel. There was an annoying low level extractor hum coming from somewhere which was mildly annoying when I went to bed at two, however the trains traveling past were unbearable. They were very audible and... More

The hotel was extremely average. Our room felt like it hadn't been cleaned properly, there was an iron burn on the carpet and there were no little extras to the room at all - just the usual tea making facilities (not even any biscuits). The room was tired and in need of some TLC, when using the toilet roll, the... More

I have stayed at the Riverbank on a number of occasions and can recommend it. A large modern hotel, the rooms are excellent - larger than most London hotel rooms and with large bathrooms. Very well equipped (including DVD player) and some rooms have great views. Breakfast is comprehensive though the cooked version can be a bit lacking in freshness... More

We stayed here before leaving on a cruise. We arrived early and the staff was helpful in finding us a room that was available early on a Friday afternoon. It's very centrally located, we walked to the Houses of Parlament for a late afternoon tour, then found dinner. There were a number of nearby bars, one of which we visited... More
