An imposing building from outside, however once in the main door, the staff are welcoming and friendly (thankfully not over-friendly).
The public areas are of a high standard, and the room I receieved (1st floor) was spacious, modern and well worth the price. My only gripe is my room faced the bridge, and the traffic noise was a little loud in morning rush hour - however not at all detrimental, merely an observation.

Experience Number One our Michelin-starred restaurant, indulge in afternoon tea at Palm Court or drinks in the signature whisky bar, Scotch.
