The hotel's website was slightly misleading- the shuttle service was excellent but needed to be booked in advance and only runs from Clapham Junction/Clapham Common at quarter past the hour and quarter to the hour. I was quite grumpy to be told we would have to wait 25 minutes expecially because it would be very diifcult to book in advance if, like us, you were travelling on the underground with no reception so we got a taxi. We booked the shuttle in advance the other times we used it and were otherwise pleased with the service.
Our room was very pleasant, and the shower was particularly good. The bed was comfortable although I thought the sheets were a little bit rough. we slept very well until 8.30am on Sunday when one of the other guests allowed the hotel to demonstrate how efficiently their fire alarms operate- no smoking means no smoking!
