But I found The Tower a fairly decent Hotel. It is representative of international chain hotels, expansive public areas, functional rooms, good food, just what you would expect. The location however is brilliant, next to Tower Bridge and St Katharines Dock. We had a room overlooking the dock and Thames with views to Canary Wharf, spectacular. Everything in our room worked, it was clean and comfortable and quiet. We ate dinner in The Brasserie, just steak and chips but it was fine, though dearer than we are used to, London prices and all that. We didn't drink in the bar but went for a stroll around the dock to admire the very expensive vessels anchored there and had a drink in the pub on the dockside.
Breakfast is also served in the Brasserie, buffet style with everything you could ask for,fruits, cereals, cold meats etc, and of course cooked Bacon, Sausage, Eggs etc.
The attentive staff serve Tea or Coffee and clear away professionally making for a relaxed start to the day. In fact all the Hotel staff were courteous and efficient. All in all a very pleasant stay.
