This hotel was perfect for our needs. My daughter and I were in London for a couple of nights to do some shopping, go to the theatre, have a good meal and attend the Foodies Festival on Clapham Common.
Check in was quick and painless, and our room was ready even though I was really early, which was an unexpected bonus.
The staff were really pleasant, especially the tall dark girl in the bar, (Anna perhaps ?), who served my coffee and sandwich with more grace than I have experienced in top end restaurants.
The room was clean, basic, and had absolutely everything we needed. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was sparkling.
The Concierge was a lovely gentleman who was intrigued by our request for a car to our chosen restaurant. (Prawn on the Lawn, which has fabulous fresh shellfish), and when we last saw him he was looking up reviews since he's a seafood lover.
The hotel is slightly off the beaten track, but the price reflects this, and we were more than happy with all aspects of it.
