Stayed for 3 nights with my wife during a weekend break to London.Stayed in a King size deluxe room which was adequate in size with a decent sized bathroom. Bed was very comfortable and housekeeping very good, the room was always clean, neat and tidy. The room lacked a dressing table which my wife found to be a hindrance when she was getting ready to go out, she had to make do with the table in the window which was not the ideal solution. Ideally the room should have a dressing table with a mirror for this purpose? Our biggest gripe was the layout of the restaurant at breakfast time, the actual breakfast food was very good but it was never relaxing or enjoyable due to the layout of the tables.The room did not appear big enough for the amount of people eating there and consequently it seemed chaotic at all times. A particularly bad spot were the tables placed right alongside the actual buffet area, impossible to enjoy a leisurely breakfast with a constant line of people on top of you?! Obviously space is limited so perhaps the bar lounge area should be utilised to ease the problem? Apart from the crazy layout the service at breakfast was another problem, we had to ask each morning for tea or coffee, it was never offered to us and it really was a nuisance to have to climb over tables to find a server! We also found that tables were never cleared quickly enough which added to the congestion each morning. You need to be careful with the prices in the bar, a smirnoff and lemonade and a pint of lager came to £17!!! This included 12.5% service charge, this especially is a rip off as the service consisted of serving me a drink at the bar, not even table service!! I noticed on the drinks menu that the vodka was served as a double, I don't understand this policy of having to specifically request a single shot, can only assume its to double the profit margin? Overall the hotel is good and I would rate it at 3.5 stars if possible but the poor breakfast experience and price of drinks left a damper on our experience. the hotel is in a great location and we would stay here again but would book room only as you can get a full english breakfast for about £6 at nearby cafes!
