We stayed for one night, having been to a theatre show in Central London. The hotel is situated in a residential area in Battersea, amoungst other modern developments. Seemed like a nice area, if isolated. The nearest station is Clapham Junction, and that suited us for work the next day. However, we paid £25 for a taxi from Central London to get there from the theatre.
The staff at the hotel are literally falling over themselves to provide good service. The hotel is quite new and well presented, although there were not many people there. We had a suite (very reasonably priced), and that was clean and spacious. The bed and pillows were new and very comfortable.
We did not eat at the hotel, but had a couple of drinks in the bar. The restaurant and bar look out on to the Thames. I should imagine its very pleasant in the summer.
If this hotel was in Central London, at the price, I suspect it would be full. If youre not worried about location, or Clapham Junction is convenient, its certainly worth a look.
