This hotel goes above and beyond for its guests.
We returned in August for my partners birthday as we were heading out to Paris early the next day and wanted to stay in London overnight.
The hotel upgraded our room by what we think was two upgrades and left a birthday card, a fruit platter/cake and drinks for my partner wishing him a happy birthday.
The staff greet you with warmth and smile and treat you as if you're the most important guest there (though of course everyone has this special treatment!!)
Our bed was turned down that night and we had a flask of cranberry juice and biscuits left for when returned from the theatre.
Sleep quality is great at this hotel and the bathroom was lovely!!! Plenty of hot water, space and very clean.
The location is great for exploring London too.
Breakfast, as ever, was the best. So much choice, fresh juice, fish, meat, cheese, pastries, breads, cereals and yogurts and of course a selection of made to order hot meals (we had the full English again as is yummy)
I have no doubt that we will be back at some point in the not so distant future.
Thank you for making my partners birthday extra special. :)
