Stayed here for work, otherwise it was too expensive for my taste. I debated on giving it four stars, but after we switched hotels, it was definitely five stars. Let me first say the service was exceptional. Everything from the initial greeting and check-in to the promptness of the service (we requested ice and other items). If it were not for the staff, I would have given this four stars. The rooms were nice, shower was a walk-in, loved it. Very Eco friendly hotel. The only thing disappointing was the restaurant. It wasn't my style and breakfast was expensive. You would think that some sort of breakfast would be included. But the service in the restaurant was also exceptional. If you can afford it, stay here. Totally worth it.

Stayed here for two of my birthdays now and will definitely be staying again for more! All of the staff were so welcoming and the front of house staff went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. Nothing was too much for them and they are super friendly (but not in your face) which I love! I highly recommend this hotel and the restaurant, no need to go out for dinner! The chorizo croquets are to die for!! In room dining was great too, the food was delicious and hot and service from all staff was impeccable. I seriously can’t recommend this hotel enough. The views of London are lovely no matter which room you’re in and Southbank is on the doorstep! Looking forward to my next stay!

Hi M7492OWnicolal, Firstly, I'm so happy to read you had a fantastic time celebrating your birthday with us. I have a super team here and the Recetion team rock so thank you for givinf them a shout out. The chorizo croquets are lush like the menu in the Art|Yard and Room Service. The South Bank Area is a very cool area and we're proud to be apart of it. Come back again next year for your birthday or why not earlier just for the chorizo croquets! :-) Lots of Bankside Love, Douglas McHugh General Manager
