Lovely hotel with a nice modern room which is spacious with a big tv. A big bathroom with a bath tub as well as shower with a great variety of toiletries. Nice decor in room, semi facing the river, heliport and other buildings. Personally I would have liked if the bed was facing the oppisite way so when laying you can have a lovely view of the river opposed to buildings. The bed and pillows very comfortable!
The spa area was gorgeous, shame the water in the hydro pool was a little on the cold side. Friendly helpful staff and as we were celebrating our anniversary they had left us a fruit basket, bottld water and a personal note in our room which added a nice personal touch. We also asked for a high room which the hotel provided.
Unfortunately the restaurant had a poor vegetarian selection so we had to find a resturant to eat at 10pm which the staff were helpful in but due to the location there is nothing in the walking area so had to get a taxi, which was pricy for the short driving distance. The breakfast was also dissapointing for 5 star in London, also veggie choice very poor, sign saying veggie sausages but there was none, my partner eats meat and he wasn't fond of his food.
The location isn't the easiest to find, would be helpful if the website stated it is a 45 min walk from the closest tube station or a ten minute bus ride from Victoria. They do provide a shuttle when leaving the hotel which is good but you need something when coming to the hotel too! Ideally we wanted to leave our luggage at the hotel after checkout in order to sight see but due to the location this wasn't practical and would be too tiring and time consuming to go back to the hotel so had to keep our luggage with us.
Nice hotel to relax at and being made feel welcome if you dont mind walking (weather dependent) but pack light if staying in London after check out!
