We stayed for three nights over the August Bank Holiday weekend. Tom on the front desk was extremely helpful. We got a garden view room with a king sized bed and a disabled access bathroom. The rooms are arranged cloister style around an attractive central courtyard. Overall it's a peaceful, tranquil environment.
Comfortable bed - we got a good sleep; pleasantly surprised not to be disturbed by any noise from the trains that seem to run practically overhead, nor by other guests. A fine quality continental breakfast was included in the room rate, served each morning in the refectory.
Very little for tourists to do in this part of town but the retreat is so close to the DLR that it doesn't matter - trains into the city run so frequently we never had to wait for longer than two minutes.
Excellent value for money, we will certainly be back.
