We attended a wedding at the Alma on Sunday 17th March - yes St.Patricks day and it was an Irish/Spanish wedding! Whilst the restaurant and bars downstairs were teaming with people we were seconded in a wonderful romantic haven upstairs in the function room and had a terrific time.
The food was lovely tap-pas type picky bits circulated the room for a good hour as we sat and drank and chatted, then a hot food buffet was perfectly presented and made the whole affair informal and very sociable. The staff were very attentive, polite, funny and nothing was too much trouble, even though the whole please was packed to the rafters!
It was a perfect day. We were lucky enough to actually stay at the hotel that night too and it was very nice. The room was very modern and clean with all modern amenities. This is a great place to stay if you find yourself having to stop over in London, great alternative to the chain hotels or the stuck up hotels that make you feel unworthy and then want to charge you £6 a pint! I will definitely stay again and stroll over the river to shop and sightsee!
