Ideal location
Great location hotel, very big, could do with more lifts! Rooms average size and clean. Checkin was fine, a lot of trainees on desk, quick enough Great large bar area and Starbucks on site. 3 minutes to tube station and great shopping nearby

Overall we would stay again
Rooms are small and sap bathroom but beds very comfy. air con very good. Nice big reception area/lounge. Didn't eat there as we felt breakfast expensive. Didn't use health club. Reception was busy but found the staff nice. (Even if lady at check in told us how tierd she was as she was a bit lackadaisical....hmm, we were tired after our journey there too...

Fair4.0
Great location and building, terrible service
Bit of a fiasco from start to finish. We arrived at 6.15pm to check in (we had booked a show in the west end so were on a tight schedule), proceeded to wait for 20 minutes to get to the top of the check in queue to be told that the computer systems were down and we could not check in. We explained that we had a show booked and needed to change our clothes, so we were offered use of the Spa changing facilities to get changed (this was slightly humiliating to be honest). We were then told that our bags would be waiting in our rooms when we arrived back. We returned that night to find our bags waiting at reception and that we had not yet been checked in.. The room was small but nicely furnished, however there was no shower gel or shampoo, and the WiFi did not work. Then, on Sunday morning at 6.00am the fire alarm went off and continued to intermittently go off for about 20 minutes.. We received a noted under the door later that morning apologising for this but no explanation why it went off. Really poor service, which is a pity because it is a beautiful hotel in a great location.

Good6.0
Our room was so small the bottom of the bed was against the wall, and you could not walk around the bed to the window. Too much furniture in the room and the bathroom was about the only thing going for the room. When we moved the bed for more space we found an old sock left from a previous guest.....yeuch!!
