I booked a twin room and a double. Each room was in a different part of the building, which was inconvenient when we were told we were on the same floor. We did not book breakfast but went downstairs to grab a coffee and catch up with the other party member. However, there was nowhere to get a coffee at this time in the morning. The coffee shop advertised did not exist, and there is nowhere nearby to grab a coffee either. We were only provided with 1 teabag each in the room. A terrible stay. The room was cold too, with no view out of the window. Never again!

The hotel is beautiful, room was nice and bright with a good view of the river. The wee ferry is great and links u to the Thames clippers. Parking is on site but very tight for my vehicle. And is £20 extra per night.... Breakfast finishes at 10am for some unknown reason so if you want it, don't think your on holiday and can actually chill out and relax. The service is shocking, I I asked for the room to be serviced which I was told it would be returned from a full day in London to the room not serviced, I asked for sheets so i could do it myself, they took a hour to appear at 11.30 at night, what made this worse was it was a pillow and a sheet not the bed linen that was required.. so all the way to reception, (they never answer the phone) to wait half a hour down there. All in all, a great building let down by a complelt lack of care.
