We stayed two nights in December, and paid 200 GBP per night for a standard double. The hotel lobby was pleasant but we didn't spend any time there as it was always too fully occupied to get a seat on the plush sofas. Perhaps this is to be expected during the weekend before Christmas.
We arrived on Friday at 2pm, the stated check in time, as did a number of other guests. The staff seemed unable to cope with the rush, and asked us to sit in the lobby, where we waited for 10 or 15 minutes to be checked in. However, the staff were always pleasant, and helpful. I liked the free DVD rental from the front desk, and the DVD players in every room.
Our room was small but very comfortable, and spotlessly clean, overlooking a quiet street at the back of the hotel. The bathroom was a delight, with bathrobes and lots of fluffy towels.
The only odd thing was that since the hotel has no restaurant or breakfast room, you are obliged to have breakfast in your room. Ok, no problem, except our room was so small, it had no table or chairs, meaning we had to eat sitting on the bed. This wasn't a problem, in fact it was quite nice to have breakfast in bed with the (complementary) Sunday papers.
Overall, it was a very enjoyable stay. It was always a pleasure to turn off the busy Brompton Road into the quiet tree lined cul-de-sac, and return 'home' for a rest.
