Stayed here for our honeymoon in room 516. This is "NOT" a romantic hotel, but it is functional for your staying needs. You would think for a London hotel it would be small sized but this was not the case, as it is not a central London hotel. The room size was was more than adequate (with me being a large guy also) for the 3 nights we stayed. The room had everything we needed. The bed was super comfy and the black out blinds worked very well so we slept in longer than we should of one night. The shower kept the right temperature (even when someone flushed the toilet).
The attached restaurant and bar are expensive but are of good quality. Two burger and fries with Apple Juice cost about £34 after the SPG members discount. If you do not like paying that sort of money then there are other places to eat locally. A Tesco express is about a 10-15 minuet walk away.
Location wise, the hotel is based in Zone 3 of London and it will take you about half an hour to star seeing the sites of London. A one day Zone 1-3 travel card costing £7.60 per day. I will point out that you are next to London City Airport and you will see and hear then take off. Inside the Hotel this is not a major problem as they are well sound proofed.
Now I always say a hotel is only as good as the staff you have contact with. We had more contact with the evening and night staff as we was out for most of the day. The staff we had contact with were very easy to get on with.Down to earth and my wife and I had a lot of laughs. Nothing was too much of a bother and nothing was an inconvenience. We arrived as strangers and felt like friends with some of them when we left.
I can not fault the hotel in anyway and will be booking for our next stay shortly.
