    The room was amazing and the attention to detail was devine!

    Wished that we had stayed longer than the single night, a long weekend here would have been fantastic.

    Fantastic location for good restaurants and interesting city walks. Lovely quirky but clean and comfortable rooms.

    Rooms on the small side but if you travel light its not too much of an issue.

    The atmosphere is excellent. It is a fantastic bolt hole in London. The staff are so friendly and efficient. Nothing is too much trouble for them.

    Comfort, location perfect for my needs, price reasonable even though I was on my own. Ambience was a bit special

    It's quirky so no risk of feeling part of the business grind

    It has no facilities so its really just an expensive b&b

    Guest rating

    Not much! It's a beautifully restored ancient building - but lacks almost all of the facilities one expects in a hotel.

    Didn't like: 1.being on third floor - with no lift. 2. Being given incorrect instructions to get to NCP car park. 3. Big bathroom - but no shower so couldn't wash hair. 4. Cracked washbasin and inadequate mirror lighting. 5. No tea/coffee making facilities. 6. No drawers to put clothes in. 7. Nowhere to have breakfast except in own small room - with no suitable table/chairs. 8. No bar service - just an inadequately stocked help yourself 'honesty bar' downstairs. 9.Worst of all, very unreliable Internet service. 10. Altogether very disappointing.

    The service offered for our first night hotel before our honeymoon was fantastic. My requests to check in early and to leave bags with the hotel on the day of our wedding were very simply accommodated with no fuss. The room was perfect and breakfast in the morning fantastic.

    Though it is good breakfast is a bit pricey. If I were staying there a few nights I'd be more likely to go for Brunch at Smith's of Smithfield and other places rather than eat at the hotel.

    Fabulous

    Decor was fabulous.

    Little things to make the stay more comfortable had not been done. Eg claw foot bath had nowhere at its side to put book and drink to enjoy leisurely soak, and overhead light cast shadow on book. Bathroom shelf not big enough for travel sized toilet bags. No hooks in the room to hang clothes so everything ended up on the floor. At this price point I would expect such details to have been thought through, without compromising the period feel.

    Tremendous sense of history- a small and friendly hotel with a feel of luxury- interesting and individual. Good location.

    I enjoyed the breakfasts but it was a tad uncomfortable in terms of sitting at the table in the bedroom

    Fabulous

    the location is fantastic and the decoration is very well considered victorian period luxury

    other than a couple of the staff who were warm and pleasant the vast majority were a combination of cold, disdainful, haughty and unhelpful. most upsetting in a hotel of this quality and I've stayed at a great many so can judge with clarity.
