            owners seemed cold and more interested in business and being on the computer than the people staying there. too busy. location was remote from anyplace i would care to eat.

            Family run hotel with friendly staff and an excellent location with good public transport systems nearby.

            7.4

            Excellent and attentive service, nothing too much trouble. Very good breakfast

            The floor was very, very creaky in our room and the carpet needed renewing.

          • Group of friends
            8.8

            It was everything we wanted for our particular break and we will certainly stay there again

          • Couple
            7.8

            The staff were very helpful, especially at the reception. We were able to keep our room til midday. The room was very quiet considering how central the hotel is. The room was quite small but sufficient for one night - bed was comfortable and bathroom clean. Good choice at breakfast.

            There wasn't enough room for everyone at breakfast so we had to wait about 30 mins to be served but the staff were very apologetic and did their best to acomodate everyone. The wait was maily due to it being a Sunday so everyone went down at the last minute! Service was quick once we'd ordered and the boiled eggs were done to perfection!

          • Group of friends
            5.4

            Really good location with easy access to the Victoria Station!

            Small rooms, tiny bathroom and noisy atmosphere..

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Good location for Victoria & theatres. Relatively quiet street and nice neighbourhood. Room small but very functional and well equipped with tea making bits etc. A la Carte breakfast excellent. we would definitely stay again.

          • Family with children
            9.2

            Helpful reception staff, who were more than happy to look for services for us. Also we had a quiet and comfortable room. Good selection at breakfast

          • Single
            8.8

            Room very clean, staff friendly and helpful. Good breakfast set me up for the day.

            Door to the room seemed pretty flimsy but safe in room and secured access to hotel. Single room and shower bit small and traffic noise but out all day. Not hotel for those with mobility problems.

          • Family with children
            8.2

            Breakfast was fantastic. We got an upgrade as there was a delux remove available. Service was great. They allowed us to borrow a guidebook for the whole day even though we had checked out - and they looked after our luggage while we saw the sights too.

            Kettle could do with replacing - it was quite old and worn and I couldn't tell it was working until it started boiling. Bed was quite hard but some people do prefer that.

          • Group of friends
            5.8

            Very friendly staff. Good and individual breakfast. Lying right in the center of London. Good connection to underground and various sights.

            Room and bathroom incredibly small. If one moves around the other better stays on the bed to be out of the way. Double bed has more or less the size of a nice single bed. Impossible for two adults to sleep there comfortably. Matress very soft and not plain. If one turns around, the other one tends to roll off the the bed the other side. If you are a party of 2 adults, under all circumstances make clear that you need two seperate beds in advance.

          • Older travelers
            8.0

            Friendly staff, comfortable accommodation, central.

            We were disappointed, having been told at reception there is 24 hour food service, then to be told at 9.45pm in the bar that sandwiches couldn't be served until 11.00pm. This seems a bit petty really when the kitchen is open and no one is in the restaurant. I would welcome some kind of explanation to enable me to appreciate the reasoning.

          • Couple
            8.2

            The staff was very helpful and accomodating. We arrived near midnight and the chef stayed late to fix us dinner - we had an early departure flight and the concierge laid out the continental breakfast items for us @ 5 in the morning!! Walking distance from Victoria Station, B-ham Palace, W-minster Abbey, the Eye...highly recommend.

            Nothing. The staff, the cleaning, the location, the whole package was really great.

          • Older travelers
            5.0

            The breakfast was good and the staff courteous

            Very poor reception area - much too small. Impossible to sit there and look around - you're right beside the reception desk with very limited seating. When using the lift to our room, we still had to go down ( and up) two short flights of stairs.

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            The hotel was chosen as a combination of location and price. We were pleasantly surprised to arrive at such a clean and well appointed hotel. All the staff were friendly and helpful and it proved to be an excellent choice for location and price so I was delighted . The main likes were: Excellent dinner before the theatre and the helpfulness of being able to order the meal before the restaurant opened to save us time. Allowing my adult son (not staying) to join us and eat with us. Advice on costs of different taxi services The room - very comfortable and clean though slightly warm and the air conditioning machine would not work ( for one night I didn't report it but I bet it would have been swapped ) Opened the window.

            Slightly confusing lift - having a lower ground and a ground I got a bit lost getting to our second room. Never quite got it right, but thats me. Small corridors and twisty but obviously an old building.
