“Friendly hotel..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2011

Very friendly service, good location just next to the Tate Modern and only a 5 minute walk from Southwark station, clean bright rooms and delicious breakfast. Only downside was being on the top floor with only one (slow) lift, but even this was worth it for the room with balcony and nice view over London. Would stay here again.

Great hotel, perfect location for a visit to London. Walking distance to the Tate, Borough market and some great bars and restaurants. Bus stop 2 mins from hotel, tube 5 mins walk. Really impressed with the whole experience at this hotel, asked for quiet room and got one, immaculate hotel, comfy bed and charming staff.

Stayed here for work, location was great but the hotel room was poor. No free wi fi didn’t enhance the stay, the food I had was ok but not standard I was expecting. Given the choice I would not stay again.

From the moment we arrived it was very enjoyable. I dont think the online pictures do this hotel much justice but it was an excellent choice of booking.

As it was our wedding anniversary celebration we were thrilled to have been surprisingly upgraded to their suite with own balcony....amazing!

Short walk to the Thames plenty to see and do about 25min walk towards Coventry Garden so ideal if you like the walking and site seeing.

This hotel has approx 7-8 parking places at the rear of the hotel Free of charge so enquire as soon as you arrive. We will definitely return in the future. But finally please don't listen to all the negative reviews it's certainly one to try out for yourself.

Far too expensive for what was on offer. Rooms were small and quality poor for the rate charged.
The building appeared to be totally inadequate for a hotel of this so called standard, it was more like staying in an office block. I felt sorry for the staff who to be honest deserved better.
I stayed with two colleagues one of whcih was from overseas, suffice to say we will not be back.
