After doing a bit of detective work with an interesting-looking secret deal, I discovered the Grange Tower Bridge hotel. I had booked the hotel as a birthday treat for my partner as we love visiting London! As a result I made a request at booking to see if the hotel could do something to make the birthday extra special.
To our utter amazement, upon checking in we were told that we had been upgraded to an executive suite on the top floor. The room was very spacious and clean, and had fantastic views of the city landscape, a ridiculously comfortable bed and a comfy seating/table area. Not only that but the hotel had actually gone to the trouble of laying out a chocolate cheesecake on the table with 'Congratulations' written on the plate...in chocolate. As a result both my partner and I were ecstatic and the upgrade really helped make our trip that little bit more special, so thank you very much!
The staff were all attentive and friendly and often said hello to us, which is something very rare from anyone but the cleaners at most hotels. The room was constantly kept clean and supplies replenished. Unfortunately we didn't have time to sample the hotel's food or spa/gym (which is why I have had to label them as average) but I assume they are also excellent. In regards to the hotel's location, it is around a 5 minute walk from Tower Hill station and very easy to get to.
All in all, we were both very impressed with the experience presented by the hotel. The upgrade was very much appreciated and I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone.
