Four nights in August in hot London and the hotel was, except for minor niggles with forgetful wait staff, exceptional. On arrival, the welcoming smiles from reception, apologies for the room not ready - we did arrive early and advice about a great pub for lunch - "this is my favourite" offers Gillian were a very good start. The location, a short walk to the South Ken Tube, with plenty of restaurants and pubs and easy access (Oyster Card essential) to every part of London is perfect. Rooms spotless and most comfortable. Bathroom elegant and amenities excellent. Definitely would go back as first choice.
