My husband booked this as a surprise for a long weekend in London for Christmas shopping. The hotel was easy to find and had parking, but that actually isn't that secure as the access code is printed in all its glory on the security barrier, and is also very limited. Check in was easy, there is a lift which you can just about squeeze one person with a bag in, and everywhere was spotlessly clean. The double room with en-suite shower room was simply furnished, warm and perfectly adequate for our needs. All seemed well until our second night when we experienced the full force of the hotel's "conference/event facility" ie an office Christmas Party. Our room was directly above the function room and we could literally hear every word of the seemingly hundreds of revellers and the boom, boom, pow of their energetic disco. The nearby lift helped carry and amplify what sounded like a bar room brawl. Three phone calls later to reception and we were moved upstairs and out of the way into a rather pleasant suite with balcony (this was after one of the staff said "well, its a Christmas party...") Thank you to the sensible manager who organised the move. So be warned if you are planning a stay pre-Chistmas as it is a popular venue for a Night At The Oscars. We didn't dine there but made use of the many establishments in the area. If you are there for a weekend and checking out Sunday but still need to park, it is free in the many side streets - we parked next to the Wine Cellar, or £2.00 in the car park next to the new Wimbeldon Theatre. All in all, its clean, close to the tube and handy for central London.
