The bedrooms and en suites were lovely, comfy beds, fluffy towels, good shower, nice toiletries and the staff on reception very attentive. The room rate seemed very expensive to me but I don't often stay in London hotels so it may well be standard. Our room with two double beds in it, so slept us and our two children, should have been about £430 but we paid half that, booking it through tripadvisor.
The breakfast, however, was incredibly expensive for what it was. The breakfast staff were over attentive, removing plates before you'd even finished your mouthful and had chance to put your cutlery down. The continental table looked amazing but there was no way to toast the lovely bagels. The full English breakfast was a total let down, with watery poached eggs, one sausage, one rasher and a spoonful of mushrooms (which were delicious). No toast is offered and there's no facility to make your own. The first coffee which came had to be sent back as it was cold and weak. A real shame.
This hotel, however, is in a wonderful spot for touring London and my children were fascinated with Scotland Yard. I would stay again (at the reduced rates) but I wouldn't bother with breakfast.
