We liked the location of this hotel, it was excellent for exploring South Bank on foot and using restaurants in the area. The room was adequate although a little expensive at $179 per night and there was some noise from the trains. The staff were very pleasant, friendly, professional and helpful. We would stay again and recommend to anyone wanting... More

I stayed here for 1 night and I am thankful it was only 1 night. I was shocked at this place, really disappointed. I think the hotel has recently had some refurbishments, but they have been done really poorly. The first room that I checked into looked like the bathroom had not been cleaned. I called the front desk to... More

We did like the hotel and we had the two room apartment. I just want to give some feedback. One of these is that we thought the rooms were great, amenities fine, if not a bit bare in what was freely available, like it would be nice if wehad a bit more milk, some butter, and free plunger cofee beans.....

As I was laying in bed and could not go to sleep because of the noise from the trains, I felt like cursing the hotel owners for not investing in double glazing! Otherwise the hotel is quite good, spacious and clean rooms, and satisfactory decor.
