It's a shame to have to give this hotel only 2 stars overall, but I need a hotel because I need a place primarily to sleep - and for both nights we could not do that. We were in a Gold room on the first floor, and the noise from the radiator/refrigerator/floorboards/plumbing/extractor fans/other guests toilets was horrendous. It is obviously going to be "luck of the draw" as to whether you get quiet neighbours who are in bed by 10p.m. or like us on both nights, guests who were still plodding around at 2a.m.. I suppose that's the drawback of these boutique hotels - old Edwardian terraces converted. The room was just big enough for you to walk around the bed, and the bathroom just large enough to turn around in "on the spot". It was nicely decorated at first glance, but carpets and (torn) curtains needing attention. We felt it was certainly not 5*.
Full English breakfast was poor for £14. Although piping hot (except for the beans which were "'fridge-cold" - someone forgot to nuke them!) the bacon was second-rate, and the sausage so spicy, we wondered which "Cumberland" they referred to in the menu! They should pop around the corner to M&S Food and buy their bacon and sausages if they want 5*! The other problem was that there was nowhere to eat the breakfast! You had to sit on the bed and eat it. There was only room for one tray on the desk at the foot of the bed. Two chairs were provided, but they had seen better days and were collapsed in the centres and offered no support. That was not our idea of 5*.
This section of Ebury street seemed to have very little traffic and was subsequently relatively quiet.
It was very clean, staff were professional, location perfect for central London needs - tube 5 minutes walk to Victoria, good VFM but we will not be staying there again. We were SO pleased to be home and to catch up on our lost sleep!
