One of the Best

Upon check in we were told that we had been upgraded for my wife`s Birthday, to a deluxe room. When we got to the room there was a very unpleasant smell and we went back to reception. There was no fuss, lots of apologies and another upgrade to a junior suite!! The suite was superb, it was decorated by the staff for my wife`s Birthday with petals, a card and chocolates. The staff are fantastically helpful and polite, all areas are clean and the breakfast isn`t a bad way to start the day. The location is perfect for exploring the centre of London and the sound dampening meant that you weren`t kept awake by the city`s hustle and bustle. Would I stay again? in a heart beat....


Great location, staff helpful and rooms clean and ...
