    The relaxed nature of the hotel, the helpfulness of the staff and the great view that the room afforded over looking the Thames with a wide panorama view. Despite being on the embankment we were surprised that it was so quiet. Breakfast was a very relaxed event, a good start to the day ahead.

    Nothing of any consequence.

    The hotel was in a super location for the theatres and the London Eye. They also upgraded us (due to my 50th birthday) to a room with river view at no extra charge. This was a super touch and made our stay special. Amazing views from our bedroom window.

    The cost of the drinks at the bar!
