Granted it was FA Cup semi final day, once the game finished there was a mass evacuation. The staff were not quick to clear up & no sign of any food being available. The menu looked okay so they lost out on approx. £150 worth of a food order. The London Pride was on good form if a tad expensive,...

Perfect location for our needs (Old Vic theatre then marathon). Friendly welcoming atmosphere. Room very clean and functional. Lovely shower. Great breakfast. Good sound reduction. The bar was very noisy at 10.30pm, but we couldn't hear it once in our room. Similarly the road noise was pretty well reduced by double-glazing.

What really let this hotel down was the check in and welcome. We arrived maiden with bags on both shoulders and were prevented from getting our rooms as staff said I'd made a double booking. Firstly they said I'd booked 3 rooms (instead of the required 2), then they changed this to 4 rooms. Unless I could show that I'd...

Conveniently located right across from the entrance of Waterloo Station. This gives you quick and easy access to public transportation. The hotel has a nice central location in the city.

I was looking for a hotel close to the Oxo Tower, and the Wellington seemed an appropriate price and is less than ten minutes' walk away. It was also handy that I was able to book through Booking.com, as I wanted to be able to pay on the day rather than at booking time. The hotel's pretty easy to find:...

The room was very small and came with ear plugs! The main line could just about be touched from my room window, great if there is ever a zombie attack for a means of escape! Found it hard to get food downstairs because it was busy and when I did the food was cold. Ok for 1 night.
