The best part of the hotel is the plush, artistic and very unconventional decor of the lobby and common areas of the hotel - very appealing with lots of great artwork worth looking at.
The restaurant is also very good for dinner - though a bit on the pricey side. Breakfast tends to be very conventional, mainstream English. Again, in my opinion this is also a bit overpriced for what you get. If you like a healthy choice, then there's a token muesli bowl, but you can get some nice freshly squeezed orange juice (you guessed it - at an extra charge)
Now the rooms can be a real hit or miss - we usually stay here for company policy, and subjecto to availability we can get an upgrade to the suites in the residential wing. These are really wonderfully furnished. Very spacious, clean, elegant - we feel great staying on those.
But if you have bad luck, then you may be put up in a so-called Classic Room, which are a real disappointment. The size is very small, the bathroom tends to have broken fixtures, and it's all rather claustrophobic with often no view but into the dead-end hotel courtyard. The funny thing is you get both types of rooms for the same price, which makes the Classic Room a real rip-off.
The overall location is great, next door to the Museum (though once you've seen it, it doesn't offer much else inspiring for adult!), and great dining out choices at night. Our facourites: Sweet Mother's Kitchen on Courtenay Place (gobsmacking Louisiana food, that we end up eating there each time we are in Wellie) and Chow (fabulous innovative south-east Asian food).
