Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Sea Containers London garners mixed feedback on value, with some guests praising the fair pricing and others pointing out unexpected costs. The hotel's cleanliness generally receives high marks, though housekeeping has room for improvement. Staff at Sea Containers are often celebrated for their exceptional service, adding a personal touch for guests. While the rooms are admired for their comfort and views, a few guests have noted issues. The hotel's location on the Southbank is a major draw, providing convenient access to attractions and transit. The modern atmosphere and comprehensive amenities, including dining options and river views, are widely appreciated, although a handful of visitors find the music and decor to be less appealing.

It was my partner’s birthday, I had asked for a nice arrival surprise to be set up. Nothing was done, the birthday wasn’t even acknowledged. Basic room was decent, but not worth the extra change they add. Booking.com agreed a completely different price. I was terribly unhappy with the disregard for the celebration of someone’s 40th

Fantastic view, fluffy stuff, Yaseen was super helpful and amazing, as was lady in the spa reception area. Great staff. Parking was very convenient. Breakfast was good, and the location is perfect for walking around the centre of London and the South Bank

One of my favourite sayings in life and very applicable to London is “Take the rough with the smooth” The smooth was the stay at the Sea Containers and how happy they made my nieces with mocktails as we sat and watched a sunset by the river Thames. Vanessa Doan made our stay fantastic by adding some little touches that put a smile on all of the family's faces.

Good hotel and location Gym is good too. Spa so-so : no pool, no sauna, steam room in the changing room like in a gym But I don’t understand why they add a 5pc service charge on top of the bill and why they don’t disclose it before making the booking. When I compare products price, I don’t have a seller adding me 5pc on the bill after I choose his product over competitors. This is a dishonest way of doing business.

I am writing this review on behalf of my daughter who is enjoying a very special birthday with her partner right now. From the moment they arrived (early with luggage they wanted to drop off to your London) they were invited to check in to their room and offered a glass of champagne. The room was beautiful, with lovely views over the river. Stunning bathroom with large walk in shower. Where the service really shone. My daughter’s partner has brought a suit for their evening out, only to find the store had not removed the tags. She was so upset, in a panic and sadly lost the time that they had set aside to use the spa. The hotel leapt into action and took the suit and were able to get the tag removed (he only had casual clothes with him and it was 7pm). They literally saved the day! The hiccups didn’t end there. My daughter had relied upon an organiser for her special birthday celebrations and they let her down considerably. She made the decision to remain at the hotel, where she was treated wonderfully and even had complimentary cocktails given to both her and her partner in the bar and met other guest who were super friendly and in her words had the best evening she could have hoped for. The hotel appears to attract really nice guests and thus the atmosphere is 👌 It’s the little gestures that make a stay at any hotel memorable. I only feel jealous that I didn’t book for myself and my husband! Thank you to all of the staff at Sea Containers, an absolute credit to the hotel - thank you for making my daughter’s birthday so special.
