We went for two night city break celebrating my girlfriend’s birthday. The hotel is a very contemporary and well-kept with all staff being helpful and considerate to requests. We stayed in the standard room and had partial views of the Thames and the Heliport. The city view on offer is less scenic and if this is an integral aspect of your stay I suggest the river view as for some the warehouse look is less than ideal. The sound proof glass prevented any excess noise from the Heliport, so no concerns of being disturbed from take-off and landings. The room was very well presented, clean and spacious with a big comfy bed and for those who like their gadgets a TV in the bathroom provided additional entertainment whilst getting ready to go out in the city. Amongst the lavish facilities offered was the Spa which we visited each day and found the facilities on offer of excellent quality, containing a sanarium, steam room, sauna and hydrotherapy pool.
A word of caution to those considering staying, have a look at its location, which is situated south of the Thames in Battersea. I was happy with the location as a young couple but returning at night would involve a bus and a walk in some unlit areas. During the day we used the hotels free Shuttle service, which was very handy but does only drop you off at Sloane Square however the tube is literally in front of you and places you on the Circle and District lines. The shuttle itself runs until 8pm but be warned there is no return shuttle to the hotel you must make your own way back by foot, bus or in our case we used taxis, which were approximately £11 from Sloane Square.
For a young couple this was a fantastic hotel with superb facilities for a short city break. If you don’t mind the slight hurdles in regard to transport I would highly recommend this hotel but for a long stay weigh in the cost and accessibility of transport to and from the hotel before booking.
