We stayed for three nights on a room only basis. We were tired in the evening so went to the Island Grill
for dinner. We were delighted with the friendly staff and the quality of the food. We ended up eating on two
of the three nights here. We also had the breakfast on two of the three mornings, excellent choices and value.
The hotel is a great location close to underground and main line stations , and 0ne minute from Hyde Park.
My husband and I were attending a lobby in Westminster and choose the hotel for convenience. The Hotel is in an excellent location, near to two tube stations in different lines, spotlessly clean and the staff were all very pleasant. Only downside was the lighting in the bedroom was very dark with no natural light even in the morning. The bedroom was very well equipped, clean and very comfortable. I would definitely recommend it to others and hope to stay there again when next in London.
We chose this hotel because of its proximity to Eurostar as we were traveling to
France the following day. Also I was curious to see the interior of this magnificently restored Sir Gilbert Scott building.
We were not disappointed with the restoration which has preserved a splendid example of high Victorian architecture. As we walked up the splendid staircase, I marveled at how fit
Victorian ladies must have been as it is quite a climb - this was a wholly voluntary exercise!
Our bedroom was however completely 21 century, well appointed and, extraordinarily for such a central location, totally quiet.
We decided not to eat in either the Booking Hall Brasserie or the Gilbert Scott Dining room as they both seemed so noisy with poor acoustics that magnified the rattle of crockery and clash of cutlery. The menus however looked quite good. There are lots of reasonable places to eat in outside on the station concourse, where we chose Carluccios.
The bedroom was large, furnishings good and the comfort of the bed simply excellent. I woke up feeling as though I'd slept under a swan's wing so cocooning and comforting was the bed.
