We booked 3 superior rooms for a family birthday and chose Temple Court because of the location to the theatre we had tickets for and previous reviews. The rooms were very comfortable with super king size beds, bathrobes and a very spacious bathroom with a lovely big walk in shower. The tea/coffee tray only had 2 tea bags and UHT milk. We were given more tea bags on request and I'm sure we would also have been given fresh milk had we asked, but at £200 a night, we shouldn't have to.
The electrics in the room required the room entry card to be slotted into its home by the door; this included the heating, so when we first entered the room it was cold. Initially we only had one key card, so couldn't leave the heating on, and coming back to the room after our night out wasn't much fun.
There seemed to be much confusion when ordering taxis. We were reliant on taxis as one of our party has limited mobility - we waited over half an hour for a taxi to take us for our pre-theatre meal and therefore were late and didn't have time for dessert or coffee which rather spoilt the event. Apparently Fleet Street was closed which was causing a delay, but we weren't advised about this or that there may be a delay. The following morning the concierge admitted he forgot to order our taxi when I enquired after waiting 30 minutes. All a bit frustrating.
On a positive note, the service we had in the bar after the theatre was excellent.
I have stayed in hotels with more efficient service overall and wouldn't choose to stay here again for that reason.
