We stayed for two nights, and chose this location because it was close to the Victoria Palace theatre. It was far enough from the theatre and the station to be in a quieter area, but with plenty of independent cafes and small shops as well as a lot of other small hotels. We were travelling in and out of London from Waterloo, and found a bus that went from Victoria Station to Waterloo Station and back.
We had to check in at the main hotel, and then a member of staff had to help us walk back with our luggage across a busy junction with traffic lights to the annexe. Our key cards got us into the front door and the room, which was in the ground floor at the rear. This worked well when we were coming back late from the theatre, but failed on the last morning when we came back from breakfast to find we couldn’t access the building. After traipsing back to the main hotel and getting our cards reprogrammed, we crossed back and tried again, only to find we were still locked out. I used my mobile to call the hotel and demanded they send someone over. As soon as the call ended, people came out of the front door and allowed us in, and our cards worked on the room door. The man came and found his card didn’t work on the front door either, this was the only drawback to staying in the annexe, where the room and facilities were excellent,
There was tea and coffee making, with biscuits, a hairdryer, plenty of mirrors, plug sockets for charging devices, storage in bedside tables and an open wardrobe, a safe and a spacious bathroom with a good shower cubicle and a mirror surrounded with lights,
Being near the front door was a bit noisy, as people coming and going tended to slam the door at night, but it was generally very comfortable, we could have done with being able to make the temperature lower. I noticed the cleaners had opened the window slightly after they’d made up the room, so they must have got very hot too. This was in late November, but the thermostat wouldn’t go below 19.
I would stay here again, as it was good value and comfortable, less
