Great Central Location

On arrival excellent treatment and service by staff. A few problems with room, booked for family of three through site. Hotel claimed to not have knowledge. Problem resolved quickly and efficiently. Hotel has beautiful lounges, bar and dinning room, worth the time to sit a relax with a beverage of choice.

Perfect location, great service

The hotel is in a perfect location for shops, restaurants, trains and buses. Service is wonderful, rooms are clean and cosy and we were always greeted warmly. I would have no hesitation recommending this hotel.

Nice Hotel close to the tube

We stayed one night only and really enjoyed it. The staff was really attentive and the room was comfortable. We also enjoyed our breakfast.
