Weekend in London

by Tom Molyneux

Had a lovely weekend in this hotel, the atmosphere is lovely and cosy, and as soon as you enter the building you are greeted by the welcoming, friendly staff. We are lunch in the bar after we arrived and it was lovely. The location is very good, it's around a 10-15minute drive from most train stations, a bonus is a tesco just around the corner for any bit and Bobs/snacks.
Beds were amazingly comfortable and you get the standard cable TV channels ( I was more than happy
With David Attenborough) Overall this a lovely hotel which fits perfectly into a 5* category. Will definitely stay again.


Beautiful hotel with nice staff

by Dev Anand

We arrived before check in time but lovely Gorgia from the front desk did all she could to accommodate us and provided a superb upgrade for us as Spire members to a spacious corner room. There was everything you could need there.
Although the atmosphere everywhere after Christmas was calm and relaxed, the decorations in the lobby continued to maintain festive mood. We had some busy time sightseeing and enjoying London. Nothing was far away from this centrally located hotel. Also, we had access to the club lounge, which was a real treat. Balszs, who worked there in the evening, was a treasure serving us tasty snacks and drinks.
The reason I would recommend this hotel and will certainly return again is because of the great staff. Thank you.
