Initially this is the ugliest building I have seen from the outside. Car parking is an extra £20 per night, and to enter the hotel from the car park is vile. The walk way is dated, carpet worn and lots of stairs to carry a suitcase up.
The initial main entrance of the hotel is very nice, clean, bright and modern. However it is far too hot in the reception area and corridors.
Our room was tiny, with only just enough room for one bedside cabinet. A wobbly floor lamp hap hazzardly placed in the room, in front of the window so I was unable to pass it to get into the bed. I had to crawl up the bed from the bottom to get in and out.
Breakfast was discussing. I think it was £12.50 per person for a buffet style cooked breakfast. It was vile. Watery scrambled eggs, a member of staff using her hands to squash down and re-fill the bacon.
On the plus side, a good view of tower bridge from the breakfast room. However, you are better off staying somewhere else and either walking or taking a bus or taxi to see tower bridge.
There was what appeared to be a job fare on in the hotel when we were there! Would have been nice to have been given this information, it does impact on what was supposed to be a romantic weekend!!
