This hotel has a great location and the building is beautiful. Rooms are comfortable and everything works. However, the reason we keep coming back is due to the staff. They have always been helpful before, during and after our stay. If there are any problems these are quickly resolved. All staff wear masks which we found reassuring. The arrangements for Day Two testing worked well and the staff were very familiar and helpful with the process. Staff in the cosy bar are welcoming, the range of products available for breakfast is fantastic. We’ve already booked our next trip.

This hotel is nothing short of superb, the staff greeted us before we got in and made us feel very special from that moment onwards. The room was ready early and we had been upgraded due to our status with Accor. The staff always make the difference and they couldnt have treated us better. The room was exquisite and very very comfortable . We would recommend this hotel if staying in London its far abopve the rest

With a lovely welcome, brilliant service and a wonderful room we were delighted with the experience that we had at the hotel!

From booking to check-in & throughout our stay, the staff were great. The room was very clean & comfortable. Although expensive, drinks were served quickly & efficiently and breakfast was well prepared & presented with a wide choice of options. The venue is well situated in London.

Me and my two best friends have just visited here, between 9th - 12th September and we loved it. All the staff are friendly, helpful and do a lot to make sure your stay is the best it can be. Our room was lovely, clean and spacious. The hotel itself is very modern and up to date. We had room service breakfast a couple of mornings and it was really nice. We also went down to the bar one night for a few hours, although it was pricey the drinks were really nice and worth visiting. I have never seen a cocktail list like the one they had before! I would definitely recommend this hotel & return again when we next visit London!
