Stayed on Saturday night for my birthday.....great check in, very personal and friendly. Was served tea in the room, shown around it and then a wonderful birthday cake arrived! Room lovely, everything you would expect from 5 star hotel, views incredible. We had triple aspect views of London from the London eye side all the way round to tower bridge, could not be better.
We asked straight away to book a table for a drink before dinner which was noted. Unfortunately this was not available when we got there, we were seated at the bar which was very entertaining given how busy the place was but slightly disappointing not to get the table we booked when resident in very expensive room! Pool was pretty spectacular but strange not to have at least a poolside shower before you jump in. They have missed a trick in not having a sauna where you could enjoy the views! Breakfast the next morning was nice but had to wait in the room for a table as there is no where to sit in reception. Slightly confused layout and lack of glasses but nice staff trying very hard! Overall a lovely one off experience but have stayed in overall better 5 stars in the city.
