Really nice hotel with a nice sized pool. Spacious rooms with a walk in shower and decent views over looking the Thames. Would return again, although consider the 35-45 minute tube journey from central London. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Let down by the bar prices. £19 for two drinks, unhappy!

Spent the weekend of my birthday at this hotel with my friends. The rooms were beautiful and clean. Facilities were on point. Staff that sorted our breakfast were so lively at that time of the morning. They were polite and made us feel special. They didn’t even know wt the occasion was but they were literally there to serve us. Such humility and respect. I can’t fault them. Will recommend this hotel over and over again. No matter the price it’s so worth it

I stayed in this hotel with my boyfriend for our anniversary. We went in the pool twice on both days and both times there were swimming lessons going on taking up Atleast half the pool, therefore wasn’t much room at all for the guests. The sauna and steam room were also out of order, which wasn’t stated when booking. The rooms air con was broken. The temperature in the room was 26.4, was very hot, we both couldn’t sleep throughout the night, we tried to change the temperature to 18c several times. The breakfast was average, quite expensive for what you get as it’s £17.50 for a basic breakfast. The hotel is very clean and staff are nice, however I booked this hotel as it looked amazing, however is very basic, would not book again or recommend for couples.

I booked this hotel for me and my boyfriend to spend a night away from home. The actual building itself was very modern and staff were friendly. However when we got to our room, the facilities were terrible. We had no bath robes, and the TV was awful. We bought a hdmi cable to watch netflix on it as it said that we could in the description, yet after half an hour of watching videos and trying different methods we called reception only for them to tell us that they had turned the hdmi off? And then we logged into bbc i player which was an app provided with the smart TV, which then didn’t work either, it said every single programme was unavailable. The mini fridge was room temperature so the drinks we bought weren’t kept cold and the “bathroom” well you could hear everything the other person was doing! No privacy whatsoever. Furthermore, the lighting was also inconvenient as you have to keep pressing it to get the right light setting.

The staff were amazing and had great customer service, the two ladies at the front desk answered all my questions and made my stay very smooth, which can be hard during these times. I would highly recommend a stay here.
