    Very good

    Location and public transport. In the evening a bonbon and extra bottle of water and an open bed. It's nice that the bins were emptied in the evening.

    Vacuuming could have been better; some more dishes; replacing water glasses at the sink.

  • 8.2
    Great

    The rooms are spacious and well set up with a good stove, refrigerator and other amenities for visitors. The river view rooms are worth paying extra for and the staff were friendly and efficient.

  • 8.2
    Great

    Excellent spacious one bedroom suite with well equipped kitchenette but the piece de la resistance is the amazing view of the River Thames through the floor to ceiling windows; extensive room service menu with good choice including pan Asian food which we love ; in the restaurant, again many choices, you can order sushi; dim sum ; thai food, or a steak all reasonably priced; good choice on the breakfast buffet plus hot breakfast cooked to order; Given the size of the suite, facilities and location hotel represents value for money as would pay far more anywhere else for that view

    We had our own vehicle and when we drove up on arrival the concierge told us that we could only park for half an hour outside then we would have to pay 26.00 for parking in their garage. The concierge also wasnt well informed about parking in the area save that we would have to cross the bridge to find our own parking - not great when my husband is 92 years old. . I think that is quite excessive for a hotel to charge their guests who are paying good money for their accommodation when you can pay less or even the same in an NCP car park

    Very good

    Pleasant, always smiling and helpful staff. Breakfast was good and gym is 24hrs.

    I can smell the cooking from level up or neighbors. Room has no view, but staring into other rooms, curtains have to be pulled in 24hrs. Gym should have mirrors for weights. An indoor swimming pool will be great!

  • 9.2
    Perfect

    Apartment was excellent in terms of facilities, view, staff, location etc. Also, we were given free cocktails at the bar which was a nice touch, plus luxurious toiletries and large bathroom.

    I would not describe the decor as 5 star, I would describe it as "student flat". The carpet by the window was disgraceful, with large burn marks in it, there was a ceiling spotlight coming out of its socket and the wooden floor in the lounge had large gaps in it (not fitted well).

  • 9.6
    Perfect

    Everything was superb, from the reception when checking in to the service if anything was required.

    Great

    Great staff. My room was very spacious, deigner and extremely comfortable. I had a pull out sofa bed in the lounge area which they organised for my daughter with no fuss and no notice. 5 star hotel with 5 star feel without being overpriced.

    Our tv in the bedroom did not work and the guy who showed us to the room said an engineer would arrive but nobody arrived. Bathroom door would not lock. I did not chase up either or i am sure it would have been dealt with.

    Perfect

    The hotel staff are very friendly and helpfull. I was in ctc with them before my arrival and they all went out of their way to answer all my questions. The room was exactly what I had requested. The kitchen more than fully equipped, up to the tiniest detail such as the tablets for the dishwasher. Staff more than helpfull. They made my stay and I will certainly stay there again.

    A couple of slightly grumpy and reluctant bar staff stuck out like sore thumbs amongst the otherwise excellent staff

  • 8.2
    Great

    Given that it has so much going for it, it really should be an all non-smoking hotel. Smokers in the adjoining room passed their smoke under the shared door all the time. Ugh!!

    Very nice stay, we were unlucky however and did not get a great view!
