What can I say about crowne plaza London docklands, well firstly it's a very good hotel and would recommend to anyone. To start with the rooms are very nice, I booked a queen room and a twin room and I couldn't fault either of the really. In the twin the beds were nice, big and very soft (the way I like them). The view at night is fantastic with the Thames following just outside and the o2 arena lighting up the sky. The only problem with the rooms is that the London city airport isn't to far away but I only noticed one plane which isn't bad for two nights stay.
The service in the hotel was excellent with the breakfast staff helping my dad & brother, who both have coeliac disease, and got them a gluten free breakfast made from scratch. The buffet was good and had a variety of different hot items as well as your normal selection of cereal and pastry items.
With the emirates cable car outside of the hotel this is a great way of getting onto the jubilee underground line with a great view of the city if you go on a clear day. And if your not a fan of heights you could also get the DLR which is an light railway service which can drop you off at numerous different underground lines.
So overall I would give this 9/10 and it would be 10/10 if there was more to do around the area!!!
