Booked this for a one night stay. Advertised as having parking close by. Very misleading. On checking in we were given a print out of local parking. This included the chance to rent private driveways on a monthly basis. Not much use when you're only staying for one night! My husband tried 3 of the recommended car parks that were advertised as 24 hour, only to find they were closed. After driving around London in Friday night traffic for an hour, he finally found a secure car park that was 2 minutes walk from the place we were eating at that night, that was about 10 minutes walk from the hotel.
Meanwhile, I had checked in only to be told that thye lift was out of order and I had to carry my bags and cases up 6 flights of stairs to our room. The room itself was fine and I thought it was clean untill I saw the used soap in the dish left by the previous occupant. Not very pleasant!
I prefer a firm bed but this bed was very hard. After a shower I waited (in vain) for my husband to arrive on the chair in the room. This was not at all boring as I passed the time watching the curtain slowly fall to the floor as each curtain ring gave way!
Having said all this, the hotel served it's purpose. We would not have booked this room had we known of the parking issues. The staff we pleasant but obviously embarassed and were used to people complaining about the misleading parking availability. the receptionist said that in the daytime people parked at the hospital. I pointed out that when staying in a hotel most people neede overnight parking NOT daytime parking.
