Pro's: Good size rooms, good facilities in the room like tea and coffee. There is a free taxi service although you have to book it at least half an hour before. They let us check in early which was great. Very quiet so had a great sleep. Clean rooms. Cleaned every day. Beautiful bathroom. Con's: staff seemed like they didn't...

Lovely hotel, amazing rates based on the quality of the room you get. Would definitely stay here again for a relaxing break. Breakfast was stunning, large variety of fresh fruit and cooked brekkie options. The only downside was the location if you want to get to the rest of London, quite a walk to the stations. We used the hotel...

Absolutely stunning hotel, immaculately clean, facilities excellent. Couldn't fault the staff,nothing was too much trouble. The only down side was the food, ate in the restaurant in the evening which was offering 50% off, which was all it was worth, shell in the crab and bones in the fish, but, service was incredibly fast. Breakfast at £14.95 was too too...

They also do a lovely afternoon Tea, (needs to be booked in advance) I have stayed at this Hotel 4 times in the past year and a half, this is my special treat, with...

Second time I have stayed here since it opened a few years back. Still in excellent condition. The rooms are outstanding. Huge, warm and well equipped bathrooms, effective aircon (but not overpowering and drying). Booking in was a trial - why do so few hotels seem to manage to deal with travel agency bookings correctly - but we got there...

Stayed there couple of times, great interior design and rooms are very comfortable, lovely view of the river. Fab breakfast and Meals are great, stayed with my husband and 17mth old baby. Staffs were helpful and hotel has a lots to offer for extra cash. One bus directly at front of hotel to central London. Will be back again.

Very nice decor, friendly and helpful staff, first class room, good secure underground parking. Forgot that I was in the hustle and bustle of london, went for a nice walk around the embankment, and only 10-15 mins drive to Knightsbridge, and the jacuzzi in the room was bliss. Made the night - will definately stay again.

Being an interior designer I appreciate comfort and well planned interiors. Rafayel ticked those two boxes from the beginning. Stayed there....5 times so far. Surely not the last. With spacious bedrooms, well equipped bathrooms, surprising colour changing ceilings (not every room) and this fabulos river view, this place let you seriously enjoy your time. Using hotel facilities like gym or...

The only down side is the location of the hotel as its a little out of the way for getting into the city. A shuttle is available to Clapham Junction, but its not ideal. If it was sited the other side of the river it would cost so much more. Our room was perfect and breakfast was excellent with the...
