Recently returned from a very enjoyable 3 day break in London, with our stay at The Tower making the trip. On arrival the receptionist was extremely courteous and helpful (as were all the staff), locating a "room with a view" upon our request, and my was it worth it. Amazing views of the river Thames and of course Tower Bridge, which looked particularly lovely at night whilst sipping a drink from the hotel bar. Another lovely view of St Katherine's docks from the breakfast room whilst enjoying plentiful and well cooked/fresh food. Thoroughly recommend the freshly made omelettes. Can get a little busy. There is an absolute wealth of things to do in the surrounding area and the hotel is ideally located for The Tower of London, river cruises up to the O2, The Tate Gallery, the BFI, Borough Market (a must if you love food, we bought lots of picnic food to eat by the river) The National Theatre and much more besides. Yes, the hotel room could do with a lick of paint, as could perhaps the outside but quite frankly the views and surrounding area more than make up for that. If you do not use lifts it would be advisable to book a room on a lower floor as the stairs were not apparent! 7 flights of fire escape stairs meant I got my daily workout but was worth it for the view from our room. Thought at first there were no tea and coffee making facilities but they were merely tidily placed in a drawer (which was labelled, we just didn't notice it.) Bed beautifully comfortable, hot water plentiful, quiet even with the window slightly open (which it was nice to be able to do if you like fresh air). Can't wait for a return visit.
