Entrance is not particularly appealing as there is a lot of building going on nearby and it’s near the London Heliport but the staff were friendly and helpful. Room was clean and modern, bed comfy but the carpet needed replacing as it was threadbare in places and had bleach stains. Service was good in the bar and breakfast was varied, could have done without the staff rearranging furniture though. Would stay here again. Short walk to Clapham Junction.

A great hotel that is outstanding value for London. It's across the river from the main attractions but we took an Uber to the Kings road for £6 and one to the Natural History Museum for £8.

The rooms are fantastic, huge comfy bed and the bathroom was slightly larger than an apartment I lived in in the 80's!

Breakfast was a buffet, great choice both hot and cold, very friendly staff in fact all the staff are excellent. David at reception went the 'extra mile' and we were made to feel welcome as soon as we arrived, nothing was too much trouble.

This really is a great hotel!

Felt like a 5 star love this hotel

Free upgrade to a Executive Room which was nice. Most importantly very friendly staff and the food was very nice the breakfast was fresh and hot tasted great I would easy pay £20 plus for the breakfast and it’s a buffet, Also note fresh fruit not tinned fruit which was a bonus.And when your eating Breakfast it’s on the Riverbank and have nice views. The sauna jacuzzi and gym was nice. There’s no swimming pool it doesn’t bother me.The room was massive his and hers sink. King size bed. The Bath Tube you can sleep in there it was that big. And separate shower. Honestly I’m looking forward to my next stay. You can watch the Helicopters take off and Land because it’s next door.

Awful ! It’s a 2 stars hotel

Avoid this hotel at any cost , this is my suggestion . I paid a price of a 5stars hotel for a room that is not even a 2 stars . Wi fi is complimentary because it’s not working . Mini bar is empty. No hair dryer provided . The only “luxury” is an old kettle with some bags of Coffee and tea. I have been in much cheaper chains hotels and the quality was way better . The entrance is really dodge and you have to walk in through a dark road that it doesn’t really feel safe during night time . I was so annoyed and angry I didn’t use the facilities .

Last minute decision to stay the night.
Great location beside the Thames... there is a helipad next door but seemed very quiet, maybe because it was the weekend.
Room was clean, good size and well equipped. Good strong hot shower. Very clean.
Breakfast was varied with menu for special orders at no additional cost.
Only gripe would be 11 am check out, I think they can extend but 11am is the same time breakfast finished so all felt a little hurried and £20 parking.. should be subsidised
