We stayed here for a special trip to London for my husband's 40th. The hotel is located right next to the station. I had emailed prior to the visit to see if we could leave bags there prior to check in, which was no problem. On arrival, the reception team could not have been more helpful, they were aware of the birthday and had our room ready to check in to. You are taken to your room by one of the team members who point out and explain where everything is etc.
We stayed in a Cubitt room (the biggest of the 3). It was wonderful, plenty of space, lovely finishing touches and the most comfortable hotel bed I've ever stayed in. The pantry at the end of the corridor was full of cakes, sweets, biscuits, various teas and coffees that you can help yourself to as well newpapers and books.
Unfortunately, we didn't get the chance to try the restaurant out, althought it looked lovely. We were there on a Friday night when there was a DJ on in the bar and can confidently say there was no noise transfer to the room from this, the station or general London bustle.
The room also had robes & slippers and a lovely bath. The TV has free movies (new & old) and Sky Sports as well as some good music playlists to just have on in the background.
We were again allowed to leave our bag at reception the following day to save taking it with us.
There is a small minibar/fridge, the bottled water is free and the other items not badly priced. Also a safe in the room.
The overall feel was that a lot of attention to detail had been made, from the fixtures & fittings to the staff.
We had a wonderful stay in the Cubitt room and I would love to go back.
