We spent two nights here recently, and were excited to return after a visit several years ago. The rooms are always quite special. African Pride calls this a HIP hotel, and when you enter your room, you'll see why - the quirky lighting in the bathroom and your own ducks to make bathtime, well, different. The chocolates on your pillows with the turndown service are a lovely touch too. Service is also good - nothing was too much for anyone.
Having Melrose Arch on your doorstep is also pleasant. It allows one to amble around, enjoying a rather civilised shopping experience.
The only thing that's disappointing is the gym facility, or at least the lack thereof.
