I have stayed at the VSC a number of times over the years and it is always an enjoyable experience. The staff are friendly and professional from the moment you enter the front door to the moment you leave at the end of your stay. It is highly convenient to Oxford Street and the entire "West End" experience as well as being good value for money.
There is an ongoing programme of improvements. By a pure coincidence we stayed in the same room (660) as we had stayed in a couple of years earlier. The decor and facilities are probably due an upgrade in the near future, but we had a flat screen television in the room, were able to turn the central heating on and off as required, open and shut the windows etc. The bathroom facilities were spacious with excellent hot water and shower facilities and unlike some hotels I have stayed in we had room to move and spread ourselves out a little. Each morning the friendly cleaning staff came through to service the room and were always happy to work around our requirements so we were not disturbed.
We were on a "bed & breakfast" tarriff and the breakfasts in the dining room downstairs provided any sort of breakfast you required from "full English" to "Continental" but the fruit selection was a particular highlight for me given that we stayed in the middle of winter when fruit selections are always a bit more challenging for caterers.
Under points for improvement I would mention two specific items. 1. The WiFi signal tends to be rather weak at this end of the VSC so I didn't bother with it. 2. The extractor fan in the bathroom needs servicing so that it works when the excellent hot showers are flowing. But these are minor points and overall I am once again delighted to have had an enjoyable time staying here.
