On arrival we were told we had been upgraded to executive rooms. These were lovely. The addition of a "nespresso" coffee maker, bathrobes, slippers and a free movie would have been fantastic if we had time to use them as we only stayed one night.
The nearest tube station was at 'mansion house' - a good 10 minute walk from the hotel via Southwark bridge.
The only real downside to the hotel was at breakfast. The restaurant area was relatively small compared with the amount of guests the hotel can accommodate, therefore the overspill of guests are escorted to the bar area to dine. Due to our personal situation we requested to wait until a table became available in the restaurant which took about 15 mins. The staff were very understanding about this and apologised a number if times for the wait. The range of food available was superb and the kids especially liked the pancake maker.
The executive room we had was spacious even with the sofa bed pulled out into a double. The bathroom, having a bath and shower over was also very roomy. The bathroom doors open outwards and fold right back, making this room easier to access for guests with mobility issues.
All in all we had a lovely stay in London with the hotel added to the luxury.
