Booked this off the internet and was expecting some kind of historic hotel but of Radisson standards. Well it is a historic building yes; rooms are reached by negotiating a maze of corridors and one tends to get lost. Lack of proper signage does not help. The room was very small and there wasn't any space to move around once I had put my bags down; the bathroom was poky and the shower noisy. The complimentary shoe-shine service is good.
Gave some clothes for laundry and had to ask after 2 days why they hadn't been returned - a giggly girl on the phone told me to check with Front Office. On asking them, was told there were no credit card details for me in the system so they couldn't give me my laundry (booking was pre-paid). What??? Shouldn't they have taken card details at check in to cover this if they had an issue?? Had to go down to the reception and demand for my clothes - paid cash when they couldn't swipe my card - and it left a very bad taste in the mouth.
Don't bother going for their expensive 18 quid breakfast - there are tons of restaurants and cafes just outside including a Starbucks. The hotel is convenient for the Tube - Gloucester Road station is just diagonally across the road.
