This is a lovely hotel. It’s in a back street near Oxford Street so very quiet (especially this time of year). Staff very nice and helpful. Hotel has an old world charm. Room nicely appointed with a strong hot shower. Breakfast was continental with high quality items. I always judge my stay on the coffee and the mattress. Both get 5*! Sad individual that I am I checked the mattress after a super nights sleep and it’s a Hypnos. You can’t beat a Hypnos mattress! We got a great deal on Secret Escapes but don’t let this fine hotel be a secret. We could have shopped and gone home as we live on the outskirts of London but I’m so pleased we stayed here. It took all the stress out of an Oxford Street shop! My wife gave it 5* as well and she worked in the hotel industry before coming to the UK. We will certainly be back here in the future.

I'll start my review with positive feedback! The staff, each one of them, are lovely, friendly, and adorable. They are always ready to help with a smile. The location was very good and excellent. The rooms, i don't know where to start🤔 we had 2 rooms, one with twin beds and one with one bed. The twin bed room was acceptable, but there were no fridges, no coffee machines, no heater or locker. The room size of the one bed room was horrible. It was too small that there was no place to empty my bag, the TV size was 17 inches. I felt it was used as a storage room, but they redecorated to accommodate the tourist. I was not happy at all and I wanted to leave the hotel but unfortunately it was nonrefundable. Honestly, the 4 stars of the hotel should be given to the staff and location only.
