If your name is Snow White and you need to book rooms for your little mates, then ignore this review - the rooms would be perfect for you.
For everybody else, this place is a joke. It looks great on the web, nice pictures, good looking rooms, set in 3 acres of land, so when you get the rate reduced from £135 to £100 you think that you've got a good deal for a nice, plush 'boutique' hotel.
Oh dear, how deceptive photographs can be.
The rooms are absolutely tiny. They smell of damp, everything creeks, the plumbing in the surrounding rooms makes wierd and wonderful noises all night and I had the pleasure of sharing my room with something that nibbled on me all night (not my other half though!).
My room had a desk crammed into it (just), a nice touch would have been to have a chair to sit on to be able to use it! The bathroom was damp, musty, dated and tiny, with the weakest shower you could get.
How about this for adding insult to injury - in the room there was a pamphlet telling you how the hotel were investing loads of money into upgrading the reception and staff accomodation!! I'm glad that the staff will have nice new rooms while the customers are crammed into their 17th century match boxes.
Yes, it is right next to the tube station, so is handy for getting into London, but if you want an 'authentic' old world room that is handy for the city, you would be better off asking the Queen to let you sleep in one of the dungeons at the Tower - they're probably bigger than the rooms here and very handy for exploring the rest of London.
