Swiss Tony in his blog recommends this hotel. I thought it was too distant from the London sights. How wrong was I and now Blackfriars underground is open it is even better connected.
I was aware of the special £20.12 offer and booked a weekend stay. As a Platinum Member I was automatically upgraded from a Standard to a DeLuxe. Because I requested a King Bed I was offered a King Bed Suite for a small supplement with access to the Club Lounge, which included breakfast and evening drinks. This I accepted and was more than pleased with the Suite. The Club Lounge was a little disappointing - very little comfy furniture.
We took breakfast in the main dining room and it was well presented and the staff were efficient and obliging.
