Following a recent extensive £10 million restoration and refurbishment program at the hotel, every area of the hotel has been transformed – our bedrooms have been completely modernised with a contemporary design and vibrant soft furnishings. Our public areas reflect the new contemporary style but retain elements of the hotel’s traditional Edwardian features. London landmarks like the British Museum and Covent Garden and Oxford Street are within easy walking distance. Just five minutes from Holborn and Tottenham Court Road Tube Stations.

Strangely run hotel. We booked via booking.com and had the printed off confirmation with us, despite this we were told there was a problem with the booking, however they did give us a room, we stayed three nights, the second morning we had a knock on the door from the apparent manager saying we shouldn’t be in this room, we explained there had been a problem and thought it had been resolved. We had no room service at all during our stay despite reporting to reception every day. Just odd. Nothing wrong with the hotel.

Hotel is in a good location. Rooms were comfortable, clean and quiet. Breakfast was very good value for money and excellent quality. Tried the bar and ordered food which was very nice although drinks were pricey. Slight problem with room which was reported to reception on checkout.

Perfectly located hotel, stayed for one night. 3 Course meal and Breakfast included within the package. Dinner was fabulous, especially the 'Gin fizz lime cheesecake', and breakfast was equally impressive. Had stayed at the hotel previously, and would not hesitate to return.
