How to Get There
I stayed at the hotel for five nights during a company event.
I was placed in handicapped access room; the size of the room was good but a few things were quite awkward in the room and the hotel for that matter:
1.) I need to prepay the whole stay at check-in, never sent that before.
2.) I go to the lounge area and although I am a checked-in hotel guest, I cannot charge my drinks to the room. Very awkward and somewhat embarrassing when you invite guests.
3.) The room has many light switches but half of them do not seem to do anything.
4.) I received turn-down service once or twice (even with chocolate left on bed) but why was this not consistently done.
5.) During breakfast, the staff are unable or unwilling to bring a pot of tea; despite several requests they still guide me to buffet to help myself.
The whole feel of the hotel was a bit strange and somewhat amateurish. With the choice of hotels in town it is very unlikely that I shall be back.
Stayed for 6 nights at this hotel very close to the Tower of London. The location is great for exploring London. It is a short stroll to the tube and to the Tower of London. The hotel has a lovely swimming pool and spa area. The staff here are super friendly and are doing everything they can to make you enjoy your visit. The only really annoying thing is that they insist on showing you a table for breakfast even though the restaurant is empty which means there is always a queue for breakfast for guests who have to wait to be showed to their table
I’ve stayed at this hotel for weeks on end while working out on a project in London. It’s a big hotel, with excellent facilities and really good breakfast. I think the Grange reward system is average as it only gets your upgraded rooms, which is nothing compared to the Hilton rewards.
We came here as a last trip away before our baby was born. We had previously been here on our first ever trip away together. It really is a lovely hotel, some staff are better and more helpful than others. I did find both times, it feels like you’re always waiting to be seen at reception and even when no one is being checked in/out the staff don’t acknowledge you, it would be nice if they looked up and said they won’t be long. The rooms are lovely, extremely comfy beds, nice tv, mini bar, love the bathroom with a great shower. The downside is that it’s beginning to look tired, it’s not cheap to stay for a night or two so for a 5* id expect to get robes and slippers in the room, as it says when booking. I have stayed in a few hotels in London and have felt a little more special at others. I suppose the facilities are what you pay for with the spa, although when we come we don’t use it much. Location is pretty good, tube not far away, nice pub round the corner and if you didn’t want to pay for the hotel breakfast which is pricey for breakfast considering the price of rooms, there’s always next door. Overall I would stay again, if I needed to be nearby we like it here but Would probably give some others a try.
My colleague and I stayed here recently for 1 night as we were attending an event in London. While the rooms themselves were nice and the check in process was thorough, we encountered a serious event during our stay which means we would never go back there again.
After heading off to our own rooms at the end of the evening, my colleague was woken in the middle of the night by 3 people at the end of her bed (one of which was so drunk he couldnt even stand up) that had been given a key to her room by reception because even though they couldnt remember what room number they were in and they werent sure of the drunk mans surname, only that it began with a certain letter, they thought it was their room. Needless to say, my colleague had the fright of her life and after she got them out of her room, she went to reception in her pyjamas where they didnt have much of an explanation other than they thought it was that persons room. She was then locked out of her room as reception deactivated her card so she had to go back again to get it sorted in the middle of the night. Once she was in her room, she didnt get any sleep all night and so was shattered the next morning. She has also been to see the Manager to discuss it.
Our issue is that when people check in, they have to provide photographic ID and fill out forms etc but it would seem that if you turn up to reception in the middle of the night, drunk, with a vague idea of someones name, its a different story and you can just get a key to anyones room with the same name which is terrifying as literally anyone could be let into your room while you are asleep.
Since this happened, the situation has been escalated and I have put this review on here as it is important that people know to ensure their rooms are secure - make sure you use the safety chain when you go to bed if you decide to stay here. Needless to say, we will not be going back.
