    We felt important and with some 800 rooms and their occupants to cater for, They all did very well

    Bedroom window frames showing signs of age ; When replace fit floor to ceiling windows so th magnificent views can be appreciated

  • Group of friends

    The view from the room was lovely, overlooking the Thames and I particularly loved the view from the Xi bar. We had drinks in there both nights and there was a lovely atmosphere. The breakfast offer of £10 was excellent, although we had decided not to have breakfast as we felt £21.50 advertised amount was too much.

    The location near by the London landmark the Tower Bridge has made me chose this hotel

    Great Location with great views of th st katherines dock from our room and Tower Bridge. Rooms were comfortable and looked nice, It was nice to have a late night drink at the bar looking at tower bridge lit up and the buffet breakfast was good

    Free wifi would have been a nice touch

  • Older travelers

    Great location , right next to tower bridge ,the tower of london & st cathrines dock.

    the bed could have been biger

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    Despite a delay on booking in and our rooms not being available this problem was resolved by the staff in a courteous manner. The hotel was clean and quite at night despite its location. Any queries where and advice was managed by the friendly staff who made our stay a very pleasurable experience. I would happily return next time I'm staying overnight in London.

    Great location.

    Poor taxi service - head straight to the highway for a cab. Water was tepid at best whilst having showers AM and PM

  • Family with children
    6.6

    Great location

    We stayed on the third floor which the minute we came out of the lift it felt like we were walking into a sauna. That was nothing compared to the room which was like an oven. Tried turning the thermostat down. We came back late from a conference, only slept 3 hours before waking up from the heat. The air conditioning didn't work and were given a fan from a night porter. This just moved the hot air around. Didn't sleep the rest of the morning. When checking out the girl on the desk asked about our stay and when I said it was NOT good she was in auto mode and wasn't listening and said "that's good". I pointed out the problem we had and the fact that we didn't sleep. All she could do is offer us a free breakfast or drink when we came back. This was not acceptable as I didn't feel that I wanted to go back as staff do not care about guests comfort. I have stayed at this hotel many times but after this experience I will find another hotel.

    The location is primarily why we chose the hotel but we also like the decor and "class" of the hotel.

  • Family with children
    4.6

    No would never go back was asked when I arrived if I would like upgrade for 40 pounds which included a bottle of wine and car park. When I came to book out turns out it was 40 pound per night. Which I was very anger about. Not worth 40.00 pound per night upgrade. Lots of better hotels around london for that price. Feel vry let down would not reccomend to my friends or family.

    Plus there was no pool which it did show on web site

  • Older travelers

    Excellent views. Lovely room.

    Taxi was alittle hard to come by..... Wife had to queue outside and was pretty damned cold. Minor point but important.

    Couldn't complain about anything, nothing to complain about as it was all perfect.
