Stayed just one night as I had business and a late night in the City. DOesn't look much from the outside, but inside it's warm, clean and everything (in my experience anyway) works as it should. I had a room on the ground floor, and wasn't bothered by traffic noise at all. Bathroom was spacious and clean and the shower was first rate. Bed was one of the comfiest I've slept on in a hotel in ages, and the decor in the room is rich and cosy.
Breakfast was reasonable cost and an excellent quality, most importantly cooked to order by a CHEF, and not from a hot buffet, so it was nicely presented and actually hot. Finally the staff were all very friendly and pleasant without being intrusive.
In summary, this has become my new standard hotel for when I need a convenient hotel in London on business. Nothing negative to add at all.
