As expected! Second stay at this hotel & staff & service are both fab! Rooms are very large. Showers are late walk in types. Food was a bit expensive, but very nice. Will be staying again! Thank you for a great stay.

I surprised my partner to Hotel Rafayel for her birthday. On arrival I was upgraded to a suite for the occasion. The restaurant is a restaurant romantic experience overlooking the river. Location is good, close to train station. I would highly recommend this hotel. Staff are so friendly and helpful

We stayed here as part of a Christmas treat and it didn't disappoint! Room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The only downfall was the heating didn't work and we couldn't get moved to another room which was disappointing and meant we were in bed for most of it to keep warm and making lots of tea and our room service...

Boyfriend paid over £300 for a night here. It did not live up to any expectations. Room was very big but that was about it. View was OK. The rest was just standard, some even below. Draws broken, several things broken in bathroom. Touched the bedside table and the shelf came flying off..Terrible dressing gowns and the slippers you get...

Location was ok. Room was average, small in size, lighting wasn't great, shower ran warm and then cold, very annoying. Late check out was available upon request but feel it was over priced at £20 per hour. Restaurant was not to the standard expected of a 5star, would not eat in the restaurant again. Staff very pleasant and helpful throughout...

We visited the Rafayel for a romantic break with the view of using the room Facilities (mini hot tub in the Emperor Suite) and possibly the Spa. The hot tub in the room wasn't the best with lights not working and some jets blocked. The Spa was also partially closed but I'm not sure we would have used it as...

Originally booked this spa for myself and my sister, which did not work out as unfortunately the bookings were lost as compensation for the inconvenience we were rebooked the following week and included a champagne afternoon tea, would definitely go back again. The spa itself is a little small but the treatment rooms and treatment itself was excellent

This hotel is definitely not a 5 star experience. I won't take the risk with London hotels again outside of a known chain. In fairness the price paid for the deluxe double was fair but our room had an industrial view (not Thames as was described). The approach to the hotel from Clapham station is through council flats and industrial...
