My son and I were going to London for one night to see a BBC recording. We arrived at the hotel early and were made most welcome with complimentary teas/coffee and biscuits in a very cosy lounge.
We were shown to our room 15 mins later, room 203. The room was nicely decorated and it was a front room, a grade up from our booking. There was plenty of room to sit; furniture included three very comfy chairs, an occasional table, a wardrobe, drawer unit and dressing table with every conceivable electric socket! Everything was imaculate and the room had everything one could wish for.
The service was impecable- nothing was too much trouble. A tea tray was ours for the asking and very welcome, late at night.
Breakfast was a feast with cereals and cold and hot buffet items. No tinned fruit at the Sumner- strawberries, melon, kiwi, grapes, oranges and pineapple were cut up and displayed with whole fruits such as bananas etc. Continental items (meats, cheeses etc.) along with hot items and a huge range of juices, breads and pastries completed the meal.
I would recommend this hotel without hesitation. It is hospitality of the highest standard and value. The location is excellent and superb if you are sightseeing in London.
I would definitely re book when next in London- thank you.
