10/10 Exceptional

Location, Location, Location
Grandparents and granddaughter for an exposure to Western Civilsation that only London can offer. Location was primary in choosing this hotel, and the hotel itself added icing on the cake with superb housekeeping and friendly, super attentive staff. This will forever be my new GO TO London residence. Theatre, History, Sights, next door to National Gallery on one side and St Martin's in the Field on the other.

Great location for theatres and sight seeing. Cannot fault the hotel service or hotel standard. Suited us for price and location

Mediocre with a Capital M
Shower in the bath from the 1970s, world’s smallest cake of soap, insufficient towels provided, this is a mediocre hotel. It would take relatively little effort to fix this but then I suspect Thistle knows this already
