A lot of character, the rooms are spacious and very tastefully decorated. Despite being above the pub, the rooms are quiet. The WiFi is very good. The rooms are on the 2nd floor & the stairs are steep so it’s tricky with luggage

Kettle needed maybe :)
I did struggle to sleep because of the external noise but maybe that cant be helped. I will say that the room definitely needs a kettle and tea/coffee in the rooms. As a lone female traveller I do not necessarily want to walk around London at night looking for somewhere to get a cup of tea, as a rule I don't like to walk into bars on my own either. Other than that the place is lovely and the staff are friendly, just may take a flask next time :)

No privacy in the bathroom
The room was clean and quant. The bathroom didn’t provide much privacy from the other person in the room due to it modern design of frosted glass doors. Location was about 40 minute walk from major sights in London. The restaurant and bar located downstairs was convenient to grab dinner and a drink.
