The hotel is easily found directly opposite the V&A, reception areas are nice enough, although they have struggled with combining a more modern theme with the historic building. Check in fine. Unfortunately for this hotel our last stay at a four star would be very hard to beat...(see Rudding Park, Harrogate). We were not asked if we needed help with our luggage and were given our room keys. Entering the room I was very disappointed, I know rooms in London can be tiny, however as I had upped the budget for this one since my last visit (Raddison Bloomsbury) I was expecting a little more. The room was tiny, which I could have delat with if it was well decorated and had a bit of something to it...it didn't it appeared tired and lacklustre. The bed was small and the bathroom tiny and a little dated. On this room i would not have rated this as a four star (and I accept that rating are not given solely on rooms). Anyway we upgraded and were much happier. Our new room was larger, in all ways and had a whirlpool bath. The tea-tray was disappointing with only English Breakfast and instant coffee, nothing else.
Breakfast was well cooked and nice, although the service very inattentive and we did sit for around 15 minutes beofre we had to catch a waiter to get coffee.
All in all, I think the hotel is relying on its location which although is good, I feel that given the excellent transport system in London you can stay in many places and have very good and easy access to the whole of the city.
I would stay here again, but only if the prices for the better rooms were much more competitive - but maybe we just booked a bad deal - who knows!
