Faded glory but a pleasant stay
Reception staff and concierges excellent - however not friendly when called from room. Good range of facilities and pleasant lounge area, iron on room, overall gives the impression of a good hotel though a little faded
Reception staff, while mainly excellent, not friendly when called from room. Bathroom was not very clean on the first day. Rooms are faded and old-fashioned, especially bathroom.
needs a lot of work to improve
cleanliness needs improving. Some of the staff at reception are rude and unprofessional. The lifts take ages. The AC in.some rooms not working. We had to change rooms.
Very nice hotel comfortable room with good quality bedding and towels
Nothing I didn’t like
Check-in given a wrong room. Very embarassing to enter the room when someone there. Lucky it is a man with dress. The roon is far too hot. End up need to call technician to switch it off Housekeeping knocking on the door at 8am for cleaning. I suppose no one will try to clean the room if I am checking out on the day.
The hotel was fabulous and I would definitely recommend it to friends and family. It added to our great weekend in London
