We spent three nights for our UK honeymoon, amazing views from Balcony room on the 12th floor. Great location for access to South Bank and many key London tourist sites. Babaye and team were exceptional to ensure we had a memorable stay. We would definitely return.

Only booked the Ibis but bumped up to exec room in Novotel, great start! Despite myriad of restrictions the hotel staff were unbelievably attentive, and actually made me feel as if I was the only guest - which despite good ol’ COVID,, I most definitely wasn’t. Ten out of ten for service.

I booked in euro and they refunded me in sterling. Which meant they profited by using a different currency as to what I purchased with.. This is a massive chain with very unsavory practices. Best avoid and better to support small hotels in future

The hotel was pleasant and clean and i felt Covid safe whilst there. We did have a problem with a sink that would not drain and i reported it in the morning on check out. All the staff we encountered were helpful, friendly and professional. We stayed for one night prior to an appointment at Barts and it was the perfect location for our purpose
