I'm surprised at the many positive reviews here. I see that the restaurant is good but not something to come out from London for at all. We stayed at the river facing room, the first thing you notice is how cold the room is as it lacks double-glazed windows. Covering them up with blinds and heavy curtains don't do the trick. The heater is painfully slow to operate although we got it working.
Considering we paid close to £250pn, the four-posted bed was very small for two adults. Hard to think that it was a double bed...unless there is a smaller double bed?
Don't pay for the romantic turndown service...the 'flowers' they are talking about is just a single red rose on the bed, some candles (half of them blown out and no matches/lighter in sight), felt quite cheated! We did contest this at check-out but were rebuffed.
TV - every channel was intermittent. I've stayed in countless hotels around the world, cheap to expensive, this one was by far the worse. When we called to complain, we were told because it's Freeview and this is what happens. Is that how it's explained to tourists nowadays...it's a disgrace.
Would not recommend.
