Charming historic hotel with an air of elegance and calm. The public areas were beautifully furnished and the staff were attentive, friendly and helpful. The beds were very comfortable and the room quiet despite sleeping with the windows open. Great to breathe fresh air so close to central London thanks to the surrounding trees and meadows of Richmond Hill. Useful to be able to leave our car in the car park and use public transport around London.
It was all good.
Only the location
The room was dirty (dust and dirty cup) and the bathroom ceiling was cracked and bits of paint were on the floor.Bathroom's light was also falling down.At the reception we asked to speak to the manager but the receptionist and bellboy told us they were in charge and that we should talk to them. They apologised for the state of the room but no service recovery whatsoever....not even a coffee was offered!! We will definitely not recommend this hotel to friends or family and will not visit again.
We loved the location and the friendly and helpful reception and bar staff. The room and bathroom were very clean. The building is very impressive from the outside and has a nice interior when you come in. The bed was very comfortable.
The room was ok, we were on the top floor (under the roof) and it was a bit small and got stuffy quickly. Interior was a little dated. Shower didn’t have very good water pressure. The bar interior also looked a little dated and worn. The breakfast is a hefty £18,00, a coffee is 5£. We would have been happier if the breakfast was included as we felt that 172,00£ (booked about 3 months in advance) for that room was a pretty high price to pay for a 2 night stay.
Beautiful hotel and surroundings with helpful and friendly staff.
Good breakfast, though quite expensive. Location good with nice views. Staff helpful and attentive. Easy to find, and good on-site parking.
Public areas far superior in decor/presentation to private bedroom, which was basic. No air conditioning. Cleaner came in very early (before 9am) to clean room, which delayed us using the room again upon our return from breakfast. Expensive breakfast.
