Stayed for 3 days whilst exploring London and the hotel was great. Rooms were clean and plenty of space for 3 people. We paid extra to upgrade for a guaranteed Shard view and whilst we really enjoyed the view I am not sure it was worth the extra money. Breakfast was fine, only had to wait for a couple of...

nice clean hotel, 200 meters from Southwark underground, many restaurants around the corner; swimmingpool, in case you want to have breakfast be early, as from around 08.30-09.00 there is a qeue, housekeeping does not refresh amenities so double check this.Good Hotel for families as well as business travellers, London eye and Big Ben in walking distance.

Great location, great room, friendly staff. Would have given 5 stars but feel the restaurant let it down a little bit. Not much choice unless you're really into burgers and not much for kids. The queues at breakfast were a bit much, but on the whole, a very pleasant stay.
