Stayed recently for a four night break with my husband in a four poster sea view room.
Positives - The room was very clean, newly decorated with lovely views over the Thames. Staff throughout were very attentive and helpful. Jacuzzi bath and shower were also very good.
Not so positive - We were slightly disappointed with the room, in that for the price we paid it was quite small. We were also put off by the cleaning staff washing our mugs in the bathroom sink in the mornings, can only assume that they dried them with a used towel, Breakfast was plentiful but food could be standing under a heat lamp for some time, my bacon was crunchy rather than crispy. Parking although free, was also a nightmare. I had to park my car two streets away on arrival before securing a sought after space outside the hotel.
Overall I would recommend, perhaps out of season when the parking is less sought after and the room prices reduce.
