The reception area is ultra modern but too clinical, as are all the public area's and restaurants, almost cold.
The Garry Rhodes brasserie is just a collection of tables in a room adjacent to the bar with the same very high ceilings as the rest of the ground floor, although I can't comment on the food because we didn't fancy the surroundings.
Breakfast was very good but I wouldn't pay over £20 to sit in a 'Canteen' if it had not been part of our package.
It was our room that was the most disappointing part of our stay, I appreciate the stay was part of a weekend package from a weekend break company but our room was the smallest I've ever stayed in in any city in the word, the bed was up against the wall and under the television so only one side of the bed was accessible which wasn't much fun when the wall side person needed the bathroom through night, not my idea of a comfortable stay.
On the plus side, any staff we came into contact with,reception,bar and breakfast were very pleasent and always helpfull.
We often go to london for a short break but we will not be staying at 'The Cumberland Marble Arch' again.
