My partner arranged the stay at this hotel followed by an evening meal in the City at The Waldorf as a surprise birthday treat for me. The hotel itself is very elegant and period in the reception area and the other downstairs rooms. Check in was easy and the staff were polite and helpful but more business-like than welcoming although very apologetic that our room was not ready for us, however they stored our luggage and as we had other things to do that didn't really matter. It was ready on our return a couple of hours later and turned out to be the exact opposite of the downstairs areas in that it was very modern. The room was quite small and it was quite an obstacle course to get to the hand basin behind the door in the bathroom for anyone larger than a very average size. The hand rail/soapholder on the wall had been fitted upside down (it isn't rocket science to fit it) but that really didn't matter too much. The shower over the bath was powerful but only had a very small screen which led to loads of water ending up on the floor of the bathroom and in fact if the door had been ajar it could easily have wet the side of the bed as the size of the room dictated that the bed was very very close to the bathroom door. Other than that the bed was comfortable and there was plenty of storage in the wardrobes. Prices in the bar were expensive but that is to be expected in a hotel of this type. The hotel is very convenient for the underground services into Central London and Queensway Tube station is only a couple of minutes walk away. I would stay here again and I would recommend it to others.
