I stayed here for one night on a weekday for a course I had in London the following day. Reception was efficient enough. My room was a generous size and had all the comfort I needed. I was disappointed that the hotel did not offer any free wifi in the rooms, I think this is a basic that almost everyone has on their home therefore a hotel of such quality would do itself a favour my investing in this for guests.
The window being very old did not close properly which meant I was woken up on several occasions throughout the night by traffic outside and by a cold breeze coming in through the gap in the window frame.
Bathroom was nice with a good shower. I found the room a little dark for doing make up etc maybe a better positioned mirror or lighting would help.
Breakfast was good with a big selection.
Lovely hotel just a shame about the lack of sleep.
