Booked 1 night (Sunday) for our
43rd Wedding Anniversary. A "Steak-ation deal @ £199.00 (GBP) which included Room with River Thames view, King size bed, Breakfast & 3 Course Dinner for 2.
On arrival, we were warmly welcomed by Reception staff, & discovered, to our great delight, that we'd been given a brilliant upgrade to a "Big Ben" & river view suite. Room 344. Wow! It was divine! So spacious & spotlessly clean . A 7ft. four- poster bed, lounge area, great luxury bathroom with 2 washbasins, deep bath, & separate large shower. Lots of towels, face flannels, & bath accessories.
Also, a complimentary bottle of champagne (on ice), & a glass plate of delicate Petits Fours & "Happy Anniversary" written on it, plus a lovely "Welcome back, & Congratulations" card
from the Senior Guest Relations Manager, Teddi Jackson.
Had a delicious 3 course Sunday Lunch (instead of Dinner) in "Gillray's", the main restaurant. Starters - Smoked Salmon & cream of Pumpkin Soup. Delicious! Mains - traditional Sunday roast; huge portions of Aberdeen Angus Rib of Beef, which were cooked to perfection, exactly as ordered, with a great selection of veggies - carrots, creamed spinach, cauliflower Mornay, roast potatoes & a very large Yorkshire pudding, plus lashings of gravy. Wonderful value for money for the Main course - £17.95 - which is outstanding, taking into account the standard of hotel in London, amount of food, the beautiful surroundings & great river views - we had a window table - & the absolutely superb service we were given by Bruno, Sunita, et al, in the restaurant, & Janine in the Bar Lounge, prior to our meal. Sweets - we had the Sherry Trifle, which came in individual large jars, layered with fruit, cream, custard, sponge, & a separate glass of sherry, to be poured in - a little bit of "theatre" there ! A very nice touch. We had a bottle of Italian Pinot Grigio Rosé @ £29 (approx) which was lovely.
We actually took our sweets up to our room to eat later, as we were replete, after the starters & mains. No room for puddings then. Breakfasts were equally good & equally enjoyable, with lots of variety - continental or cooked - &, again, the staff were absolutely marvellous, cheerful, friendly, & helpful. Lisa, Natalie, etc. Our only comment regarding the restaurant is that the lovely hot plates on which our food was served, very soon became cold, as the tables had a metallic coating which chilled everything quickly. Putting table mats on them would prevent this. We were afforded the luxury of a second night at the same inclusive price, for which we were very grateful. Dinner on the 2nd night was equally as delicious - 'though we only had a main course this time. Small rib of beef on the bone, pan fried Sea Bream, both with creamed potatoes, creamed spinach & cauliflower Mornay . The fish was cooked to perfection. The Beef lacked a little in flavour, surprisingly.
Only 2 very minor glitches whilst there - the safe jammed, & was fixed within 15 minutes, & the mini bar fridge was not cooling properly, so again, a swift replacement fridge was put in our room for our use. Very efficient service!
In summary, we had the most wonderful possible 2 day celebration of our anniversary, made so special by the superb service, friendliness, cheerfulness & efficiency of each & every member of the hotel staff with whom we came into contact. We were treated
like "royalty". We would like to thank everyone at this beautiful hotel for their kindness & friendly care. We will always return here whenever we come to London. Can't be beaten !
