My husband booked the Romanttic package as a birthday surpeise and it was more then expected. The cabin was large with a seating area and a balcany which for me was the icing on the cake, the bathroom could do with updating but the rest was nice. We had a 3 course meal included and it was pleasant but not amazing. The service was overall good but I wouldn't say it was a 5* and not value for money. I saw a speacial deal on Secret escapes there and if we paid that amount I would say it was about right, so I would say only stay here if you manage to get a cheap deal.

A warm welcome as soon as we arrived. Staff made you feel welcome. Greeted by reception and booked in early with no fuss. Given keys to room and whilst we waited in the room they decorated a second room with banners and balloons for my wife's birthday.

Very disappointing stay. I will say though that the rooms were clean although the carpet was wet underfoot from cleaning the carpet. Expect wet socks! Very overpriced for quality of hotel and lack of facilities on board. Extremely expensive drinks. Charged £5.00 service for bringing 4 drinks approximately two feet from the bar? Bar serving last orders at 10.30. Restaurant incredibly expensive and not particularly great quality. Most starters were fish and what weren't they ran out of. Service not great either with a whopping £28 service charge. Staff definitely not trained to a high standard. Location not great for a London stay far too far out. Great for the excell or O2 but not for a city break. Overall completely overpriced and underwhelming. Would we come back. Absolutely not.

Spent a Saturday night there - a birthday surprise from my husband. Our receptionist Sarah was very nice and we were made to feel very welcome. We didn’t book breakfast but had the option to add it on the Sunday morning but didn’t as I heard the other receptionist telling a guest ‘to get there early as there may not not be much left’ 🤔 Thus gave me some cause for concern as breakfast wasn’t cheap. The room was lovely, clean and comfortable. Sadly, there wasn’t enough tea and milk and no water in the room. When we asked for more they didn’t have enough milk to give us 🤔 Also, last orders at the bar is 10:30pm for a close at 11:00pm, so no drinks if you’ve been out for the evening, which is a huge shame and puts a damp squib on the evening. The journey back into and out of the city isn’t 20mins - they haven’t included the walking time to the station or the waiting time for all the trains and there’s at least 2 to catch. Sadly, I won’t be returning. If you’re going to London, there’s hotels that are a lot more convenient.

We booked a romantic getaway which included D,B,B.. The bar staff made us the most amazing cocktails, yes they were pricey which you expect in London however they couldn’t have been any more helpful & friendly. The room was clean & spacious. The food was exceptional. The only thing I will say is the staff kept asking what package we had & I felt they should have known by looking at their booking screens so became confusing at times & had to keep explaining we’d booked a package with it all included.
