I stayed in the hour glass hotel with my partner and I loved every minute of it.
The rooms were clean, the beds were comfy and the breakfast was just what we needed to start our day of touring around London.
The best part of our stay was the bar staff. They were very helpful and polite. Lauren was the one who stood out to us the most, she remembers our names and always made is laugh when she was around. She is a real asset to the establishment.
The only downfall was the owner. He wasn't around much and when he was, he came across very arrogant. He undermined his staff in front of customers which I thought was very unprofessional.
Overall I had a fantastic time, it would be all the better if Lauren was the owner.
