Overall a good hotel in a very nice area. Check in was rather slow, however we were pleased that our room was available earlier than the 3pm check in. The room was small, but pleasantly decorated, very comfortable bed and pillows. Excellent shower.
Rather disappointing was the lack of toiletries in the bathroom - no shower gel! When my wife asked a cleaner for some, there was none available. The soap & shampoo were not up to much either.
Pool and gym facilities are outstanding (perhaps one of the best in greater London). Free parking on site is a real advantage.
Would recommend this hotel for those wanting to be close to the hustle and bustle of the city (Waterloo 15 min by train), but want somewhere a bit more relaxed to come back to. Some lovely restaurants nearby - Rock and Rose a real gem!
Be aware that wedding receptions are held in the hotel which might be disruptive / noisy (however the reception on the Sat night was reasonably quiet and was from 8 to 11pm).
