First time of visiting and won't be the last, absolutely stunning views of Tower Bridge, or St Katherine's Dock. Super friendly staff and plenty of choice for breakfast, the one meal we had at the Vicinity attached to the hotel also offered good food. You are so near the thames you can practically touch it, there are cruise and ferry points very close by, hotel has parking but a tight fit if you have a large car. The room was a bit dated but the towels were large and plenty of toiletries. Bedding was crisp and fresh, pillows a bit too soft for me but mattress was comfy, pity the mini bar wasn't available. On St Katherine's Dock plenty of bars & restaurants with a Tesco Express round the corner. Hope to return in the very near future.

very convenient location, and quiet for central London. Rooms are of a good standard with some fantastic views. Didn't try the food or the bars, but they looked inviting, and seemed quite lively. I would certainly stay here again

This is the second time I have visit this hotel, both times for some reason we have been given an upgrade on check in, had a suite for both visits, amazing. All the staff were very friendly on check in and leaving, we parked our car in car park which was really convenient as checked out, went to the shard and left the car.

Excellent hotel, perfect position and great view of St Katherine's dock, we watched all sorts of boats, from dinghy to millionaire type yachts coming and going through the locks, very interesting. We asked for a quiet room and, apart from crane noise(which was out of the hotels control), it was a lovely room, very clean with tea, coffee, toiletries and fabulous towels. Breakfast was everything we needed with fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereals, toast and various cooked delights. My only criticism is that the tables were too close together in these uncertain times and the rooms were quite big enough to move the tables to give adequate and safer space around them. Staff were very attentive and polite.

Dear Judi C Thank you for your review. I was so pleased that you had a positive experience and enjoyed the location. I was also delighted that you would love to return in the future. I have taken note on your comments on the tables at breakfast and although they do comply with guidelines I will review the current set up and create more space where possible. Thank you again for the balanced feedback. Kindest regards Bechir
