there were four of us staying here for one night and three shared an apartment on the 10th floor with a stunning view of the river whilst I had a room in the hotel. Modern, well furnished and well equipped and a short ten minute walk from Clapham Junction. But whilst my room perfectly ok the apartment was sensational, on...

Stayed one night at the weekend. Booked Premium deluxe a couple of months ago, on ringing on the day to check booking was told had been upgraded to junior suite. Room was big with separate dining area and way bigger bathroom than normal. Not certain but possibly traded down on a full Thames view for a partial view but taking...

I booked via a search engine and expected the worse as the price was very competitive for the location. Upon arrival I was delighted with the location and views over the Thames. The staff could not have been more helpful and the restaurant was amazing in terms of choice and quality of food. The room itself was clean, functional and...

This hotel was very good and the staff were very helpful. We'd asked for a room with a bath but they hadn't received the request but upgraded us to an apartment. This was excellent. There is a lovely restaurant on site and when we were there there was an offer of 2 for 1, the food was excellent. Note that...

I stayed for one night on May 5, 2014 with my husband to celebrate our anniversary. We were warmly welcomed & surprisingly wished by all staff members. We were overjoyed to see a wishing card, Rose Patel & delicious chocolate in our room. The room was luxury & spacious. And, above all, the River Thames view was fabulous. In short,...

Great rooms, newly furnished and high tech.The staff was very helpful at all times. A little far from the underground but there is a free transfer from the hotel. You might as well learn the bus routes so you don't spend to much on cabs. The price and quality compensate!
