Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

This hotel has a brilliant location in a quiet street just behind Trafalgar Square.
The staff are what makes this hotel excel, so friendly cannot cannot do enough for you.
We had an evening meal which was very good value for money 3 courses for £19.95 with a very good menu. We also had breakfast for £ 12 which was excellent.
Our room was nice and the bed very comfy, just a personal thing on the decor! A bit too dark and office looking for me that's all.
All in all had a very good stay and would recommend.

Have just returned from a 3 x night stay , celebrating our silver wedding, on arrival had a complimentary room upgrade ,first impression on arrival was that it was an ok hotel,, but staff were lovely and location is one of the best we have ever stayed in, and we have visited London numerous times, you are right next door to The National Art Gallery which obviously since the lottery has free admission , you are right next door to Trafalgar Square and if you turn right out of the hotel ,1 x minute walk brings you to Leicester SQuare and theatre land and cinema's, we would most definately stay here again and highly recommend it

We stayed in room 507-this room had a nice sized bathroom with a gorgeous shower head and no annoying shower curtain. It had a true king size bed that was so comfortable. This location could not have been more convenient to site seeing, or central London. The staff was lovely, especially the front desk. Would highly recommend this location and stay here again.

This hotel is in a GREAT location for sight seeing, nightlife and convenient to underground stations that will get you anywhere in London. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful and a special thanks to Mani in guest relations who worked with our tour company to get us an upgrade to a Junior suite and Lazlo at the concierges desk for his help and suggestions, they along with the akk of the front desk staff made our stay memorable!

Room Tip: If you can upgrade to a Junior suite for more room during a longer stay.

There is a lovely friendly atmosphere to this hotel.
Perfect modern and clean bedrooms - I had a great nights sleep.
Staff are very attentive and nothing is too much trouble for them. Breakfast was everything you would need - I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and hope to return when in London on business in the near future!

Not sure if this is the correct place to do this review as only went for afternoon tea, didn't actually stay in the hotel so can't comment on the rooms etc. Had bought a Groupon voucher for afternoon tea here for 2 people so decided to take my mother for a treat. Wasn't too hard to find, luckily my Google maps on my mobile was up to the job, first time I've used it too. Anyhow back to the review of our lunch. We arrived half an hour early than we had booked the table for but as there were only a few people in the restaurant the maitre d said there would be no problem with allocating us to a table, we had the choice of quite a few and chose to sit in the window, not that there is much of a view but there was more natural light. A waitress very quickly came to see if we wanted either a glass of champagne, fresh orange or apple juice; of course we opted for the champers! When it was brought out to us we were then asked if we had any dietary needs or conditions of which we didn't but on hindsight should've said we'd prefer the sandwiches to be all in brown rather than white bread as my mother doesn't eat white. But no matter, the selection which we had was sufficient with mini cakes/desserts plus scones. Felt the tea selection could've been a bit better and was a little disappointed that it was tea bags (Twinings), rather than loose tea but it tasted good anyway. We couldn't eat it all and were both rather full so decided to take a wander round to Covent Garden. Will probably go again but using another Groupon offer not to pay the full price.

Located just off Trafalgar Square, making the location ideal for central London and for me particularly, access to Whitehall. Friendly staff, lovely room which was quiet and with good facilities. All staff without exception, were helpful and friendly, I had no waiting or issues when I wanted some small extras e.g. luggage storage, information on the tube etc. Breakfast was very nice and overall I would definitely stay here again, I found the whole experience quite relaxing and totally 'hassle free'.
