Lovely hotel, bit further out, but impressive rooms.

I stayed here for one night. The hotel was great, the rooms were big and very comfy. The bathroom was lovely. I did not eat in the restaurant so cant comment on this. I would definitely stay here again

Disappointed

This hotel is booked as a 5* hotel but it sadly lacks this rating. The bedrooms are very nice but that’s where the plus side ends.
Sadly there was no street appeal to this hotel. It felt like it has been squeezed into an apartment block. No real curb appeal.
There was no comfortable lounge area to do just that. A couple of sofas and chairs in main reception do not count as a lounge in my opinion.
The restaurant and bar was opposite the hotel. We had lunch there and the food was substandard for a so called 5* hotel. I had toasted sandwich and chips (great 5* menu!!) and I can honestly say I’ve had better on Gt Yarmouth sea front! We did complain and had to state our case firmly that the food was not good enough before the waitress agreed to not charge me for my meal.
The Spa is VERY tiny and nowhere to lounge in the area. There is a separate room however to rest but this was not pleasant.

I really wouldn’t stay here again and would say you can get much better for the same money elsewhere in London

Stylish hotel, good location and quality

Stopped here 3 years in a row now. Extremely stylish hotel for the money, great service.

Our junior suite was upgraded for free to emperor suite, we overlooked the Thames and helipad, huge Tv, even bigger jacuzzi bath. Super king bed with really really comfy Hypnos mattress and good pillows meant we slept until 9am! (Very unusually for us). Reception were very helpful in arrange taxis and the bar was lovely for drinks before and after our awards night. Would definitely recommend.

Highlight was the one moring i was allowed to have my breakfast outside the restaurant with perfect views of the Thames

Disappointments with the room on ground floor that forced me to keep curtains closed as the windows that were floor length were clearly visible from outside...uncomfortable bed. In briefing on check in information about the hotel kept to minimum...hotel seemed to be under construction..Good= on the river..Resonably quiet...

Not as great as it looks on the outside

We stayed in the Thames room which was a lovely room with lovely view however i was surprised with how basic the room actually is, no amenities, no extras, had to call reception to ask for basic things such as slippers, tooth brush. The bed was quite uncomfortable as it was very bouncy therefore you would sink too deep into the bed which i wasn't very fond of.
The spa was very very disappointing, there is no actual swimming pool, only an 'exercise pool' which looked very unappealing. The Jacuzzi was lovely, along with the sauna but that is all they have. There was no spa receptionist when we were there which was very frustrating as we wanted to enquire about treatments.
All in all the hotel was nice however nowhere near as nice as i thought it would be, definitely not as luxury as they make it out which is a shame.
