My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights 7th and 8th of February 2014. We booked the cheaper room due to limited funds. When we arrived we were shown to our room which was spacious and clean at the front of the hotel, we did however mention to Maria at reception that we were hoping for a room with...

Good value hotel right on the river. Excellent restaurant - one of the best steaks I've had in a long time and a fantastic view to boot. Great walk from the hotel up river to Battersea Bridge through Chelsea then along the Kings Road. The courier service works well or else the 170 bus from Clapham junction Station drops you...

Short notice business in London found me in need of a comfortable hotel, not far from the centre of Town, and without the requirement to spend lottery money on it. Rafayel offered, what looked like, a great deal and so it turned out to be. Anyone arriving by car will note the narrow approach to the hotel and the small...

We recently booked a package at The River Wellbeing Spa, and had an absoultly fantastic day. The Spa was lovely and our treatments were amazing! Topped off by the friendly and helpful staff, expecially the very accomodating young receptionist who went out of her way to help us throughout the day!! We will definately be back!

I was suprised by my girlfriend for my 30th birthday with a stay at the Rafayel, and we were both amazed. The staff were friendly, the food was impeccable and the atmosphere was great.. some fantastic wines and enjoyed the cigar menu.

Walking into my huge room, I decided immediately to give this hotel an excellent score because the view was sensational. I like that kind of thing - heliport with helicopters coming in and out every half an hour, a small dock with colourful old barges, river-boats pootling up and down and the Thames right infront of the enormous window. It...

The hotel is beautifully decorated, our room was large and comfortable and the staff were warm and friendly. The spa facial was lovely, followed by a chill-out in the relaxation room with fabulous views over the river Thames, where the staff were attentive but unobtrusive, regularly checking we were comfortable or if we'd like any drinks. Dinner in the Banyan...
