Just spent several nights at this hotel. The personnel working here are very friendly and eager to help out. Our room was not as small as expected, OK size.

Lovely hotel, great location for shopping, theatre & Covent Garden. Hotel rooms clean & comfortable, not very roomy but big enough for a 1 night stay. All facilities in hotel, tea & coffee making in rooms, hairdryer & toiletries. Also the lifts were very quick, & never had to wait any time for it. would recommend.

We stayed here for the first night of our honeymoon - and what a treat! You feel special from the moment you walk through the door and into its beautiful, hushed lobby. The meal on the Terrace was delicious too (we were blessed with great weather but there's patio heaters too) A great stay for a special treat!
