“Pleasant surprise!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2012

Spacious, somewhat underheated (but the warm duvet more than made up for that) and rather quiet (at least from 10 pm to 6 am - outside those times you hear some vague airplane sounds but that did not bother me), this was not a typical London hotel. Comfortable, in an area that looks lively, this was a nice surprise. The shower was not very powerful and the (large) bathroom is in need of a bit of repair and TLC, but a good experience altogether. I booked this via www.hotels-london.co.uk, which was about half the price mentioned at www.hotels.com, so please compare before you book!

Room Tip: Room 304 is at the back and quiet.

My granddaughter and I stayed here for 9 days; I found the hotel on various internet sites and decided to try the Southbank location. The hotel staff was welcoming and attentive; the pub breakfast (included in my room charge) and dinners were very good; and the location worked for us, near both the underground station and the south bank of the Thames with all its action (The Eye, theaters, street performers, and restaurants). Would definitely stay there again.

Not bad but wouldn't go back. We asked for a quiet room and were given one at the back which avoided traffic noise but unfortunately had a fan of some sort going all night outside. Bathroom in need of upgrade.

I booked a single room which was compact and comfortable, did it's job for a couple of nights while on business. I certainly would be very happy to book and stay here again.

Had heard reviews that noise could be an issue due to location, I didn't hear any noise or have any issues.

Food was great value and hearty, real pub grub and I enjoyed being in a real pub with a buzz in the evening. I was glad not to be in some bland hotel chain.

Couldn't get better - great value and enjoyable stay.

What a great place. Booked through Laterooms and £95 for a large good quality room with quality fittings in such a location makes it a snip.
The bar is great with good service and great selection of proper beer.
I had (for an over-nighter in London) a really good sleep.
Breakfast was fine. I stuck to the continental which had a good choice of cold meats, hard boiled eggs and breads/ fruits and all sorts. If I'd been a proper oldie, I could have filled a handbag for a substantial lunch from the display. I'm not and I didn't.
Good place and I'll certainly stay again.
