Me and my friend stayed at the hotel for 1 night to use the spa facilities and to have a girlie night. The room can get really expensive when booked last minute and even though we got it fairly cheap in comparison, I still don't think it was worth the money. The room itself just did not look as glamorous... More

Absolutely fantastic Hotel. Read some dodgy reviews, but i would argue with any of them. Really friendly and welcoming staff, Gym overlooking London. Room was amazing got a decent view over the Thames, safe locked underground car park at £15 in London is pretty good as well. I'm in Victoria, so Clapham Junction is about 10 minute walk and easy...

We booked our room with breakfast included,of which I highly recommend. It is right on the Thames which makes it a nice start to your day. Our room was spacious,modern and full of complimentary amenities. The hotel is perfectly located. If you want to go into the city or see the countryside, you are in a perfect location for both....

Thought the hotel and staff were great. We were upgraded to an amazing apartment, superb views and sublime rooms. Breakfast was to die for. Free travel from Clapham junction to the hotel and only half an hour notice given, same for return journey. Great base to travel to most of London, bus stop only opposite. Only my second time at...

Firstly. There is a free shuttle service to/from the two nearest tube/rail stations - I didn't realise this and walked over 2 miles, seemed like a good idea at the time! The shuttle collects outside the Nationwide bank at Clapham Common. So transport link wise the location isn't great, other than that it's very nice. It's next to the London... More

Lovely hotel, good location just outside london. Only a 10 minute walk from Clapham junction. Room 123 - Lovely views, right on the waterfront. Difficult access to shower as glass shower door has been fitted wrong way around.

Whilst this hotel is nice, and the staff are very friendly and helpful, there is no way it's a 5* hotel. Curtains in room were off the rails, cupboard doors didn't shut properly, mouldy in the shower cubicle and lots of other little things that I would expect better for the star rating. Conveniently located and with £15 a day... More
