    Perfect

    The check-in was early, the service was accommodating, plus very decent location. Bfast staff as other staff members were cool. I loved a luxurious decor and vintage furniture. Plenty of decent items for English breakfast. There was a superb restaurant, shops and the markets next door.

    Stunningly beautiful place!

    We stayed 2 nights and liked the very quiet location. The queen room was well kept and had coffee facilities and climate control. The shopping area was good for summer holidays.

    Nice to have a patio. Hotel's bar was delightful. Worth its 4 stars.

    That milk was missing. The street, as it's noisy.

    Friendly, the River view, our room (Christopher Wren), great restaurant and good service.
