A pleasant smart large modern London Hotel. Nothing outstanding to make it 5 stars.
Unfortunately we [i.e me] booked it in error for the City Grange. I didn't know this one existed and wrongly assumed it was the one between Fenchurch Street And Tower Hill Stations. The GrangeTower is five or ten minutes from the station which is not so good in the wind and the rain.
We changed our room from a boring view to a higher floor with a slightly less boring view. The room was quite pleasant with a smart styling but looking out over office blocks and scruffy housing does not sing 5 star.
The bathroom probably delighted the stylist but the shower cubicle was quite small and had curved doors which would not stay completely closed and one could not help but knock them ajar. The shower unit had a fixed overhead, plus a wander lead and additionally two fixed chest level jets. Unfortunately this unit was positioned directly opposite the opening door and it takes little imagination to guess how much water spews out onto the bathroom floor.
We generally used two extra bathtowels a day to mop up the flood.
The breakfast was very expensive and not included in our [relatively] bargain room rate, so we looked elsewhere. There is the restaurant adjacent to All Hallows which is good and cheap. The Premier Inn opposite could have been good value at least, but ran out of everything, had huge queues and if you wanted a full English it would take three or four trips over a 20 minute period to get the individual items. They couldnt cope with the concept of cooking things at the same time! Not recommended unless they sort out their act!
