Quick check-in and out. I’ve emailed hotel few hours before check in if they can do an extra touch to the room as booked in overnight to celebrate son’s birthday. They have added small gifts in the room for him. Clean and spacious. Good choices for breakfast and friendly staff as well.

Do NOT use the inhouse restaurants
The hotel and staff where amazing. The food however should go from cooker to bin to save the environment. A £60 dinner bill for uneaten food! Will return to the hotel but make dinner reservations in nearby Kingston.
