Not a great first impression. A Christmas party in the restaurant that would be fine if the music wasn't so loud that you had to shout to be heard when checking in. And that can be heard in the rooms too. Staff unable or unwilling to get the music turned down even just a little bit. Rooms are nice but... More

Great location, lovely pool and good size family room, but it took forever to check in. There was constantly a queue at the desks because they were so slow! Check out was the same so we just left the keys

Had a room on the 8th floor. Very spacious, by London standards. Clean and modern. 2 minute walk to nearest tube station, Southwark. There's a small Tesco around the corner from the tube station, in the opposite direction to the hotel - convenient to pick up lunch or breakfast items.

Modern spacious room with large kingsize bed, modern bathroom. A quiet drink later in the evening is impossible though: the bar is extremely noisy. Very friendly reception staff. Computer availability for printing maps. Perfect location with post office and cash point next doors. Found a place to park in the street (on Saturday afternoon and Sunday) around the corner!
