Just a one night stay while here on business that a colleague had booked for me. What a fantastic place this is! Immaculatley decorated and staffed with a real sense of ease whilst walking through the grounds. Real character to the building and outside areas.

Wonderful to return and receive a great welcome from the members of staff on the reception desk. Stayed over in the suite again - clean & cool (fan in the room). A great place to visit Stratford to attend the Anniversary Games at the Olympic Park as well as travelling into central London. Thanks - so glad we found you!

Pros: great staff. Very clean rooms. Cons: rooms facing garden do not have air-conditioner.The staff was very kind to move us to an air conditioned room but the room was still not comfortable to sleep in. Not sure if it was the beds too but we stayed 3 nights and couldn't sleep properly. I wouldn't recommend the hotel in summer... More

Stayed here for my ordination retreat a fortnight ago and it was great. Very clean and spacious with some lovely outdoor space. It was remarkably peaceful considering how urban the surroundings were. The food was INCREDIBLE - really good variety and very fresh. Well done all - I hope to return!
