We arrived at around 11 o'clock in the morning and were able to check in although check-in time was 3 pm. I heard and read lots of complaining about the unflexibility of the reception staff which i can not confirm. Everyone was very nice and guest- oriented. I guess that sometines it just depends on how you ask for something. The rooms are a bit small but very stylish and cosy. We also had breakfast at the restaurant which was delicious and not too expensive.
The one and only thing that we disliked was the location, which was a bit off...it takes you 15-20 minutes to London Bridge station.
I would definetly stay here again.

Late June we stayed for a number of nights as did a number other family and friends. It was a great visit made all the better by the excellent service and attention from all the staff. We dined a number of times in the restaurant, entertaining our children and grandchildren. The restaurant staff catered for the wide range in ages and were so very friendly and attentive.
We have now stayed a number of times at this hotel, the locality is perfect to visit the sites and the City of London. The neighbourhood is excellent, having almost a small town feel to it. We were pleasantly surprised to see the large number of families who lived in or around Bermondsey.
Great spot, we'll be back!

Stayed here for 2 nights over the weekend.

Excellent view of the Shard.

Good clean comfortable hotel.

The breakfasts were good, with plenty of choice.

It made a change having your breakfast served by a waiter instead of a help yourself buffet.

Situated within walking distance of bars, restaraunts and cafes.

Its about a 15 minute walk from London Bridge tube.

Beware of the service charge thats automaticaly added when you sign for drinks.

If you need to leave the air con on during the night ; you will need ear plugs.

We will stay hear again.

Room Tip: Our room was next to the lifts. The lifts were quiet. The only noise was from people using the lifts

This was a nice clean hotel with an excellent breakfast. The staff was very helpful. There is a grocery store a few steps across the plaza as well as a bar. The plaza had a flea market on Friday and a farmers market on Sat. It was a bit of a walk to the tube but they had bus stops that were closer. We didn't use the buses. They had a glass blowing shop on the way to the London Bridge tube station. We also passed many restaurants and bars. They had a laundry mat down the street. The only negative was the hairdryer didn't work in the bathroom and they didn't have a plug near a mirror. I mean really! Who can style their hair without a mirror. The only option I could think of was an extension cord which I did not have. So I dried my hair, looked in the mirror, then back to the dryer, then back to the mirror... very frustrating. That was the only negative, so if you don't style your hair with electrical appliances you will love the place.

Room Tip: The handicap rooms are larger and we needed that because we had an extra bed in the room. The room...

Stayed here when going to see a show at the O2. Hotel good, nice size room and great shower. They have a fridge in rooms and can put your stuff in !! No wardrobe, just two rails on the wall but ok. The only problem was we had a connecting door and walls paper thin so could be noisey. They make you wait to 3pm to check in but you can leave your bags at reception. Not happy with the maid knocking on the door at 830am though. She did this with a number of rooms. They cannot have it both ways. Wait till 3 but try and get you out before the 11am check-out!!
Nice little square and you can sit outside the bar and grill of the hotel. Sainsburys right opposide, cash machine, another bar and small eatery with fantastic cakes and stuff.
We booked this as many hotels busy or really overpriced due to Buble at the O2. 15-20 minute walk to Bermondsey tube or Tower hill but juct a few stops away and no hassle. Parking off site if about 10-15 minute walk and £21 quid for 'up to' 24 hours. All side streets we saw were all permit resident parting and the wardens were on the prowel... bless them.Though of taix to O2 and reception said around £25 quid but the weather was great so walked and tube.

Stayed here as a Birthday treat and thoroughly enjoyed the experience from start to finish.

Arrived earlier than check in and the room wasn't ready (it was 1pm and check in is 3pm)...but offered to store our luggage.

The hotel is about 8 mins from London Bridge tube. Just turn right out of station and walk down to a Chinese restaurant called the Great Wall and turn right again and keep walking!

The room (211) was clean and well presented. Shower was excellent and nothing to want for except maybe an iron. Reception probably would have sorted that had I had asked I'm sure.

There's a Sainsburys local opposite the hotel which is convenient to get any bits you need last minute.

If staying you get 15% off at the Gregs Bar and Grill for lunch and dinner (offer was on when we stayed July 2013).

We had breakfast included which was very good - Full English and juices, cereal, fruit salad and cold meats... All good quality!

Plus points:
- Clean and modern
- Close to shops
- Staff friendly and knowledgeable

Negatives:
- Slight trek from tube station
- No nightlife after 11pm

All in all a great visit and the gentleman on check in with the suit had excellent customer service!

Enjoy!!! :)

Stayed 2 years ago in March and thoroughly enjoyed it. Quiet location across from St. Mary's churchyard. Moroccan restaurant/ bakery in square was excellent. Very modern and clean. Alfies restaurant/ bar on premises is also good. Quiet location across from St Mary's churchyard. On the south bank of the Thames and away from the hubbub. Would stay again.
