This hotel really has the Wow factor. Beautifully decorated, perfect bed and linens, personal touches like the pantry on each floor, charming view over St Pancras clock tower, convenient location. So why does it not get the full 5 stars in this review? Because whilst it is a great experience, it is also just a hotel, and there are basic things a hotel should do. There wasn't anywhere for us to put our luggage in the boutique room. There is superfast broadband, but no desk for me to sit down and write a quick business email. The shower has a rainfall shower head, but disappointing water pressure. Huge queues at checkout. The real question is: would I recommend it to a friend? Overall yes, I would. I just wish I could give it a perfect 5 star rating.
