“Ideal location”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Lovely clean and comfortable rooms. Full size bathrooms. Good location for the DLR and plenty of good restaurants. We didn't eat here so can't comment on the food. On the downside we were there on the hotests 2 days of the year and the fan provided was not enough to combat the intense heat.

Dear janeeb,

Thank you very much for your review.

Regretably I read you had to combat the hotest 2 days of the year with our fan's. We would love to eliminate this issue but due to the World Heritage site we are on this we are unable to get this changed.

I am pleased you still gave the hard working team a fair score, as they would also like to have air conditioning throughout the whole building.

Kind regards,

Tim Gehrke

We were amazed by how central the hotel was, right next door to the Maritime Museum. You can easily spend a whole day in the area walking around the nearby attractions.

Car parking was an extra £5 a night so if you plan well you can arrive early and have all that day to explore and leave late on the last day without additional charge.

We had room 117 which was a large light and airy twin overlooking the inner courtyard. It was very peaceful and although a bit warm there was a fan provided.

In addition to the tea, coffee and packet of biscuits in the room you will also find a comfort station up the stairs that are in front of reception. If you are early enough in the day you will also find fruit, biscuits and flapjacks as well as the drinks which is a really nice touch.

There are a couple of free computers to use attached to printers which helped us print out some last minute tour info.

At the moment your can do the books about town Greenwich trail which will take you past some interestingly painted benches.

Nearby there are loads of restaurants and many are very reasonably priced.

Greenwich and Cutty Sark DLR stations are close by or you can catch a boat along the Thames and at the moment tickets for this are half price so another great deal.

Would definitely stay there again when the deals come up through De Vere.

Room Tip: I would imagine the rooms facing the river would give you a nice view over the gardens but could be...

fine if there is an r in the month.

This hotel has an excellent location near to the attractions in Greenwich, very good staff in reception, reasonable beds, clean rooms of a decent size, bath sheets rather than towels, cotton sheets, breakfast was good, coffee machines available during the day and while parking is not free it's a reasonable price. Mixer taps to please American visitors. Unfortunately it was also excessively hot and the curtains don't keep light out, so while it would be a lovely hotel in winter in summer it would rate 2 stars if I'd paid the rack rate as a decent night's sleep isn't available with open windows, early flights from the City airport and too much light in the room. Since I paid a discounted rate it rates 3 stars. We did have a fan but that adds to the noise and didn't make a lot of difference to the room temperature.

I appreciate this is a listed building and air conditioning is not possible. However there is no excuse for the light coming round the sides of the curtains or under the room door from the corridor. Corridor lights that are on sensors would reduce the light pollution, since all lights generate some heat marginally reduce the heat in the hotel and of course save on energy costs. We left towels on the rack to reuse but I think they were still replaced.

Greenwich is an interesting place to visit and I'd be happy to stay in this hotel in cooler weather.

Dear buzzard2000,

Thank you very much for your comments.

We will be looking into the issue raised with the light and also how we could be more energy friendly as we are already aiming to be very energy user friendly.

Hopefully we can impress you more on your next visit.

We stayed here for a concert at the O2. We had lunch in one of the restaurants nearby, there is a good selection with a few mins walk. Cutty sark is literally at end if the road. We caught the boat to the O2 & taxi back after concert it was £12. Hotel was clean, comfy & friendly helpful staff. Would use again

This hotel is in a lovely spot next to the Maritime Museum, and handily located for the Royal Observatory, Cutty Sark and the O2 Arena. The Clipper pier is close by, and there are good connections via the DLR.

Service was friendly and efficient, and the room was good. However, there is no air-conditioning, and on a hot couple of days this was a serious drawback. Given the high prices we paid for the room we would expect comfort in the room. Also, the hotel is close to the flight-path for London City airport. Flights seem to start early in the morning, and the noise levels were high.

Dear Jonathan L,

Thank you very much for your review.

As a Grade 1 listed building on a world heritage site, making any modern changes like air conditioning is not possible. That's why we have provided 60% of our bedrooms with fans to combat the heat.
Whilest we are understanding your point, we have sadly no way of changing this. I am pleased that you enjoyed the locations around the hotel and hope that we are able to welcome you back in trhe near future.

From our arrival to departure all of the staff made us welcome and took care of our needs and wants. Convenient location, quiet, and beautiful. Reasonably priced (especially for England). The breakfast was a real treat.

Room Tip: Courtyard worked well for us.

Thank you very much for taking your time to write a review.

I am very pleased to read that all our staff were very friendly and looked after you. The mentioned court yard is great on sunny days as it is like sitting on your own terrace.

Hopefully we are able to welcome you back this summer.

Stayed here for two nights and wished could have been longer. It's ideally situated for the O2, Greenwich Observatory and Cutty Sark. Has it's own car park. Hotel is spotless. Room very clean and tidy. Breakfast very good and helped by the senior breakfast supervisor Everton. What a character and lovely man.
