First room was too small with the bed contacting to the wall.

Second room the neighbours were very noise and we realised the walls were not sound proof.

They say the best things come in small packages - this hotel room did not disappoint. On arrival we were told our room had been upgraded. We were shown to a very small room in an annexe and were initially dismayed. However, this ingeneous little room can only be described as a tardis - it contained a beautiful ensuite, ample storage space and a mini kitchen fitted into a wardrobe, with full size fridge, microwave and even a safe. The bed was very firm and comfy and we had a great night's sleep. Best of all, though, was the superb breakfast. A huge choice (far better than the Radison!) of absolutely everything - even veggies were catered for - washed down with fruit juice and REAL coffee. Produce was from local farms/farm shops and the quality second to none. We can't wait for our next London trip and will definitely return.

Please note // these are not complaints, just little niggles and ALL were immediately rectified. The room was initially freezing cold but we turned the heating up full blast and drank several hot drinks and we were soon as warm as toast. The bed only had 1 pillow each but more were immediately supplied on request. The loo seat was loose and the extractor fan in the ensuite didn't work, but on mentioning these points we were told the maintenance team would attend to these straight away. Someone in the annex was very obviously smoking but yet again we were told this would be rectified. So all in all it boils down to FANTASTIC customer service by staff who really care. Brilliant!

The staff were lovely and welcoming on reception and were also very helpful. The room was clean and in good condition and it was nice to be able to have a microwave and a fridge as most hotels wouldn't have this.

The room itself was fine but I think the bathroom had seen better days and could use a refurb.

Friendy staff. Especially the ladies who were responsible for breakfast service.

The staff were very proffesional however the room was terrible.there was a microwave oven. A full size fridge in the wardrobe which generated lots of heat. And a very small window which I had to leave fully open to try and cool down. I would not stay again or reccommend unless you are a contracter.
