It’s located in a great location! The hotel and the staff were incredible, especially Denis who helped me so much. I would stay there again!

Fair 4,0
Off chicken, small corridors, tiny reception...
Unfortunately, I was served off chicken for a room service meal, which I luckily only ate a few chunks of. Not what I expect at any hotel, let alone a 5* hotel. When staff were confronted with this, they didn't seem alarmed by the fact I could of got food poisoning, and asked if I wanted something else...? No thanks I'll pass. Stayed in a suite, which I was pleased with. However, the hotel as a whole feels disjointed, small maze like corridors, tiny reception area, and staff who didn't look appropriately dressed to be working there. I stayed in W London, which was much better experience. Shame.

2nd visit
2nd stay, new roof terrace should of been hot tubs or a pool as it’s a waste of space only 4 people up there one evening and drinks way too overpriced. I have one more booked stay here then I think I won’t return again, just lacking outside relaxation space. Garden rooms no comfortable furniture to enjoy it
