Our daughter recommended this hotel for its convenient location, and we found it ideally situated. Gloucester Rd tube station is a five minute walk, and buses leave for Baker Street and Clapham from nearby. This enables the museums, shopping areas and the river to be reached speedily. We spent four nights here, and slept well. Our room was at the back of the hotel, with a balcony and a view over the garden. The room was quite small, but well equipped and the bed was comfortable, though a standard double, not a king size. The shower was powerful and hot. There wasn't much room for make up etc in the bathroom, and it took us a while to work out how to turn on the taps. (pull forward towards the right for cold, towards the left for hot.) Each morning we enjoyed an excellent breakfast, a buffet with bacon, as well as a continental option. You could have as much as you wanted. The bar area was comfortable, with free newspapers, and a 'Happy Hour' from 5-8, with beer at £2.50 and a class of house wine at £3. The red wine was French cabernet sauvignon, and worth ordering. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Lots of local choice for coffee, snacks and dinner in the immediate area. Waitrose just across the street too! We plan to return . less
