I have been fortunate enough to spend two short breaks in as many months, at this excellent Hotel.
The overriding factor which makes "The Hide" so special is its Staff who work tirelessly to ensure you stay is memorable, I’m not talking of anything out of the ordinary but just things other Hotels seem to have lost to their detriment, things like the Nothing is too much trouble reception staff (printing off e-mails, providing a Jug of Milk for a late night Coffee, and ensuring an item we left in reception was placed in the room for our return), and all of this is done in such a way as you the customer believe they care, service which is sadly disappearing from these shores?
The Hotel itself is Modern and extremely well presented, with the communal areas such as the Breakfast/Lounge area to the Public Toilet all being of the highest standard and immaculately clean, it makes such a refreshing change to see such attention to detail.
The rooms are spacious and once again immaculate in their attention to detail and cleanliness, from the Courtesy Mini Bar (Soft Drinks and Water), the Fresh Orchids, the welcome platter of Chocolates, the Bathrobes and Slippers and L’Ocitane Toiletries, The Hide certainly doesn’t hold any punches when delivering value for money.
Breakfast, The Hide doesn’t over Gilt the Lilly, but what they do is provide a very high standard Continental Breakfast to rival any other establishment and put so many of their competition to shame.
I cannot over praise this Hotel, but I did forgot to mention, (and some reviewers have criticised, do your homework!) is the fact The Hide is on the outskirts of town, but an easy Tube trip puts you in the centre of the City in 20 minutes and given the Hotel is 2 minutes from the Tube this is no great shake, and of course it has the added benefit of FREE onsite parking and an excellent 5 minute link from the Motorway (really it has it all).
So for a trouble free, value for money Hotel within a stone’s throw of the City, The Hide ticks all the boxes.
