              Clean, comfortable room with lots of gadgets.

              The view out of the window or rather lack of the view. With opened curtains people could see inside our room.

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              The staff were efficient, friendly and the breakfast was wonderful. We had a thoroughly wonderful stay at this luxury hotel. The bed was really comfortable too and the room facilities were excellent. The room was also really quiet at night - amazing. And the car parking was cheap compared to other locations across the city.

              The lighting in the bedroom could have been a little brighter when we needed it to be e.g. putting make up on, styling hair in front of mirror (there was also no square pin plug near the mirror for drying hair)

            • Group of friends
              6.6

              Accomodation was excellent and eco friendly.

              Checkin staff were the worst I have ever experienced and the manager promised to investigate and come back to me and never did!

            • Group of friends
              9.6

              Room was fantastic, hotel great with a good rate for the room... dont hesitate

              Needed the addition of a mirror over the dressing table

            • Family with children
              10.0

              This will be probably the longest review I have ever written. Here is what we liked about the hotel: free shuttle service from the railway station.There is a bus 170 from Victoria stopping just at the hotel. Free cakes (delicious) and herbal drink/tea at the reception. Strategically placed free mineral water.The luxurious design all over the hotel. The library. The spa with jacuzzi ( very handy after busy day in the city). Very, very well equipped gym (every cardio machine with LCD TV screen) and lots more. Beautifully designed and clean spa. Very spacious room. 2 inches thick carpets. On screen(TV) lighting and temperature control . Very nice and plenty of organic cosmetics to use in bathrooms. Generously big bath.

              nothing really major but still tv screen in bathroom not working and the same with music service in the room. ( not a problem if you bring your mp3 player or game console that you can easily plug into room audio wiring )

              8.2

              Excellent well run clean and friendly staffed hotel, large comfortable rooms, lovely beds and bedding, good choice of facilities, nice on site restaurant, lovely roof top terrace - if it's city location you are after it is just a little bit too far out of the city- black cabs £40 from kings cross! However hotel has arrangement with mini cab firm at less than half the price! Would deffinatley stay there again.

            • Single
              6.6

              big rooms, free wifi, reception staff friendly

              no tissues in room, no shaving mirror, bad light in bathroom, AC too cold, far away from everything

            • Couple
              7.4

              the room was lovely, very luxurious. The bed was amazing as was the shower. The staff were very competent and professional

              The situ of the hotel was not great for our needs but that was our fault. It would have been lovely to have been on the other side of the hotel with a nicer view and the shower randomly came on in the middle of the night and woke us. I am not sure that we got great value for money.

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              Loved the size of the suite very clean & luxury fittings & 42" tv & enjoyed the view over the Thames from the communial decking area

              Dissapointed some of the key features weren`t available ie I pod & internal lighting didn`t seem to reflect what was shown in the hotel pictures,view from room was very dissapointing also noise from heli-port meant for early wake up

            • Single
              9.2

              fantastic rooms: look brand new, spatious, design; nice wellness center which also looks as it never used before. Very friendly and helpful staff. Restaurant: magnificent view over the Thames, excellent food (sea bass with squid and ink sauce...only the starter "aubergine caviar" did not please me. Prices in restaurant are ok, as hotel guests get nice reductions

              the location of the hotel, quite far from the nearest underground, but the hotel offers a free shuttle service to it

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              The riverside location, especially the terrace overlooking the Thames.

              It was impossible to see the sky from the room offered to us, which simply overlooked a covered parking area. We had it changed.

            • Couple
              5.8

              The reception staff never even looked at you when you walked into the hotel let alone say hello.....the hotel is in the middle of no where and def not a 7-8 walk from the station......the hotel room was lovely and we did get a free upgrade as it was my boyfriends birthday (the card and the cupcakes were great) The guys who take us to and from the hotel to the station were great and extra friendly. The food was nice at the restaurant and had a nice view over the Thames.

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              Visited son and daughter in law who had just given birth to twins

            • Older travelers
              6.2

              Modern, very clean hotel

              Original room allocated was noisy as situated over a wedding function which we had not been advised about. However the staff were very helpful and moved us instantly

            • Single
              9.2

              I thought the staff were very nice indeed. The room was extremely pleasant and nicely designed. The hotel is directly on the Thames so it was nice to stroll outside.

              The hotel is new so it still seems a bit wonky. The fire alarm was going off as I arrived because someone was smoking in their room and the staff had great difficulty switching it off so it went on for ages. Seems like a bad design if everyone in the hotel gets disturbed because someone is smoking. They lent me a laptop to access the internet, which was great, but why did it have to be plugged in? Surely they should have Wi-Fi? The reception computers and printers also seemed to have problems, which caused delays. But I think once everything is working properly, it should be a lovely hotel, and to be applauded for providing a quality of hotel one usually only sees in Asia.
