This is now my 5th trip to London and I was a bit nervous as the travel agent had booked a hotel that I hadn't stayed in before. I read the reviews on trip advisor so I felt a bit better arriving. When we showed up there was no one to grab our bags from the car so I began to get worried... This was their only fail of our 3 night stay. We were upgrade immediately without even asking. The room was well done and very comfortable. Room service, laundry, housekeeping, shoe shine were all absolutely wonderful. Never did we have to call for a reminder or anything. I ate breakfast and Lunch at the hotel several times and everything was delicious and cooked to perfection. Even the poached eggs I had for room service were still hot, I felt as though I was in a restaurant. I was too late for lunch one day so I ate in the bar, I have the Sea bass and it was shockingly amazing as I was expecting "bar" food. The gym was small but never was there anyone in there so I had the whole place to myself. Waters and towels were always stocked and perfect. I believe that this small boutique hotel is doing a wonderful job and I highly recommend to anyone traveling to London. The location is award winning as well.
My only complaint is that the bar doesn't feel very inviting. I love hotel bars, and this one feels more like a cafe. This is not to be mistaken because the service and quality is perfect, just the atmosphere lacks something.
