Stayed 24 thru 29 jan for the fourth or fifth time at this property....being off-season got a great price for a change! Was upgraded as an IGH PLATINUM MEMBER to a family room facing the garden...which was nice since my daughter who is studying at Cheltenham joined me for a London break at the weekend.
The hotel is really good in all respects, brisk efficient check-in, decent sized well-appointed rooms with a pretty good bathroom by London standards ( not shoe-box sized and good shower pressure!), great location with various transport options right next to the hotel, a friendly efficient front-desk and concierge service and a really good breakfast buffet which I availed of.
On the negative side, it irks me that I was asked whether I preferred 600 bonus points or a welcome drink and chose the former...the same HAVE NOT YET BEEN CREDITED TO MY IGH POINTS! This was a minor irritant to an otherwise excellent stay.
