Great location in quiet residential area but close enough to restaurants without needing car. V&A within walking distance. Good sized rooms - we had large balcony overlooking swimming pool. The pool is a great bonus after a day's sightseeing.

Small room with a queen size bed with a small balcony that was not very comfortable. Staff is nice and helpful. There is a small swimming pool but in the shade... Air conditioning was difficult to understand.

The shower and toilet were OK, if a little tired. Dimming light switches were fiddly and the lead on the kettle was too short to connect to the nearest plug....

Firstly the comment is contrary to what you told us during your stay when you asked reception if anyone had access to your locked safe as you thought you had...
