I have stayed here several times over the past ten years and always find that the hotel is a comfortable place to stay. Check in and desk staff are always courteous and efficient. The rooms are always very clean and pleasant - plenty of space and much better than the London hotels that I have to stay in. Bathroom has a modern sink and large bath with shower (though on this occasion the pressure was a little poor), plenty of open hanging space with trouser press, iron and ironing board, tea making facility, large and useful work desk, though there could be more electric power points in this area. Beds are very comfortable though the pillows really let them down - hence the loss of one star. Most noticeable was the flat screen TV HD picture - very, very good compared with my London hotel fuzzy picture and a good interactive menu. Some rooms overlook the main London railway line which can be briefly noisy but the rest of the hotel is very peaceful. Breakfast buffet is very good. Rooms have a couch or two chairs and small table.
