What a great place to stay. It has to be the cleanest hotel/club we hjave ever stayed in. There are prices from the lowest budgets to the Rickett Suite which is excellent. On arrival you feel welcome immediatley the UJ is sSituated a few yards from Waterloo Station and there are many places in walking distance, the Old Vic is actually 3 minutes and the South Bank probably 10 minutes at the most. Food here is very varied and very reasonably priced a fine breakfast is £8 and evening meals most main courses are under a tenner. The Bar is comfortable but busy and prices here for drinks and snacks fit most pockets. In the foyer is a daytime coffee bar with good choice and again good prices. Housekeeping and comfort is excellent and though the rooms are mostly converts from years ago they are comfortable but not always of uniform shape.
The club is open to members and their guests and families and is probably the nicest home from home for many members of the forces including those with disbilities where a great effort has been made to provide accomodation to make them comfortable. Some foreign forces and ex-forces are welcom but check with the club membership secretary. Enjoy.
