Our room was modern and clean with a view over the river. Staff were friendly and efficient. Really enjoyed the breakfast - good choices and tasty too. We didn't have an evening meal but the restaurant/ bar looked busy and the food looked tasty as it came out of the kitchen. Would stay again.

Fantastic breakfast with good quality meats, good coffee after a brilliant evening meal [fish and chips - huge]. Staff were great, friendly, attentive and accommodating. Views were great and the rooms were fine. Bed and pillows a bit too firm/lumpy, but that is probably just being a bit picky. Room was very warm but the windows opened fully allowing a... More

First time at Shard. Turned up as a group of eight for Saturday lunch around 2pm just as a group of seven turned up before us. Restaurant was already busy but this proved to be no problem. Welcoming staff explained what was going on and we had a leisurely drink and perusal of the menu. Chicken Kiev was a popular... More

Booked a deluxe double room for a 2 night stay. The staff were welcoming on our arrival and friendly throughout our stay. The breakfast, included in the room rate, was excellent and it was nice that we were given a table next to the window each morning. There are, however, a number of things that would need to improve in... More

My husband and I stayed on Saturday evening, not really knowing what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised! A friendly welcome at check in, a clean, comfortable room, a lovely bar with views of the river made us decide to dine there that evening.
