We chose this hotel partly from previous reviews and partly because of its location; we were not disappointed. It is situated a couple of hundred yards from Deptford Bridge station on the Docklands Light Railway and was quite easy to locate. On arrival we were greeted by very efficient reception staff and we were soon on our way to the 9th and top floor of the hotel. We had booked what they call a 'privilege' room and we noted all rooms on this floor were in that category. The mini-bar was stocked with various types of water and soft drinks and was included in the privilege. It has been mentioned elsewhere that the bathroom door is opaque glass, which is true, but the entire door is covered in text relating to Kings and Queens over the centuries and in any case the door was around the corner from the main part of the room.
We found the room very comfortable and peaceful and the view from the window included many of the tall buildings in the Canary Wharf area in the distance. As there is only one row of rooms at this level, outside the room is a viewing area looking in the opposite direction.
Being near the DLR station, it was a simple matter to take the train two stops to Greenwich (Cutty Sark) and then explore Greenwich with the Observatory, the Zero Meridian line and of course the Cutty Sark itself. We also took the DLR in the opposite direction to Bank station on the London Underground where the DLR terminates; from there we were able to visit many parts of central London.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay as we found the staff friendly and helpful and the Breakfast was well stocked with a variety of different foods which should cater for most tastes. In the evening you can visit the restaurant or eat in the bar area.
