We were looking for an overnight stay in london for a family of five and found a two bed apartment at the royal foundation of St Katherine. After realising it was a religious retreat I felt a little concerned but my worries were completely wrong.
It is modern, very clean and very friendly. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, the room was very nice. Considering the DLR runs past the hotel I was concerned with noise but it was extremely peaceful! Its a 2-3 minute walk to the station which made it perfect to get into the centre of london.
The breakfast was of a high standard and plentiful. The only one very small downside was that the beds were single and did not push together so as a married couple I would have preferred a double bed. But it wasn't a big deal as everything else was so good and it was only a one night stay.
A fantastic overnight stay. Ill definitely be staying here again.
