My wife and I stayed at this hotel on the 1st December 2012, just three days after it had opened – having booked through Lastminute.com. Our room – on the sixth floor overlooking the interior courtyard, was small but extremely stylish with an excellent bathroom. Lots of nice touches - coffee machine, high quality toiletries, collection of magazines. Although this hotel is only yards away from New Scotland Yard and Westminster Abbey, it’s an oasis of peace and we had no problems having a relaxed night’s sleep.
We chose to eat in the Blue Boar Smokehouse restaurant and the quality of the food was extremely high – the restaurant manageress was very attentive. There were signs here – and over breakfast the next morning – that the staff were still settling into their roles and the odd hiccup was being ironed out but all of the staff were pleasant, helpful and attentive. We left the hotel with the feeling that – if standards were maintained and wrinkles sorted, this would be a hotel to use in future.
When my brother and his wife came to stay with us for a week and we planned an overnight stay in London, a deal appeared on Secret Escapes for this hotel so we booked a night – Friday 12th July. We emailed the hotel direct to mention that we would be arriving early on Friday morning – to go to the Coronation Festival at Buckingham Palace – so could we leave our bags and formally check in later in the day, also mentioning that it was my brother and his wife’s wedding anniversary.
When we arrived at the hotel it was to find that both parties had been upgraded to Club rooms and that evening, the hotel provided my brother and his wife with a decorated plate and sweets to celebrate their anniversary. Again, both rooms were extremely comfortable and the staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was first class.
We would certainly recommend this hotel and will stay here again without hesitation.
