The staff were brilliant, very helpful and accommodating. The room was amazing, wonderful view of the Thames and very comfortable. The spa was, as usual, an amazing feature and extremely relaxing. The hotel bar and restaurant was great, wonderful flavours and excellent service. All round this is a wonderful place that will make you feel at home.

After reading all the fantastic reviews we decided to stay here for 4 nights. When we finally arrived we were surprised at the location it cost 30 pounds in a taxi. The hotel is new as said on the reviews but however the view from our room was not that of the Thames but of the car port . Hmf...

Modern, spacious, luxurious and comfortable. Only minor gripe is the lack of lighting in the room which makes them very dark in the evenings. The location, views and staff are all wonderful would certainly stay here again.

This is an absolutely beautiful hotel. We loved how modern it was and how they really made an effort to be energy conscious. As a techy couple, this was right up our alley. It is about a 15 minute walk to a metro station although the walk to the hotel didn't feel quite safe when walking at night. But we...

This was a really underwhelming experience from start to finish! On arrival, in the car, there is no one to greet you or any signage to say where to park. We therefore drove round the hotel twice before i got out and went to reception! The staff were all pleasant however looked terrified any time you asked a question. Every...

We were there for one night only and it's slightly off the beaten track although truly only a 10 minute walk from Clapham Junction. We had a standard room which was very comfortable and well appointed with tea making facilities, waffle robes and slippers and free WiFi which is always very welcome. The small double bed was a bit of...
